Effective decision-making for crisis mitigation increasingly relies on visualisation of large amounts of data. While interactive dashboards are more informative than static visualisations, their development is far more time-demanding and requires a range of technical and financial capabilities. There are few open-source libraries available, which is blocking contributions from low-resource environments and impeding rapid crisis responses. To address these limitations, we present SeismographAPI…

Military planners and other decision makers require advanced early warning of impending crises so they can devise effective mitigation plans, mobilize resources, and coordinate responses with their

Introducing the UCDP Georeferenced Event Dataset

TLDR
The rationale for the new UCDP GED is introduced, the basic coding procedures as well as the quality controls are explained, and an example of how the data can be used is provided, by illustrating the association between cities and organized violence, taking population density into account.

While the coronavirus spreads, governments are attempting to reduce contagion rates at the expense of negative economic effects. Market expectations plummeted, foreshadowing the risk of a global

Predicting Armed Conflict, 2010–2050

The article predicts changes in global and regional incidences of armed conflict for the 2010–2050 period. The predictions are based on a dynamic multinomial logit model estimation on a 1970–2009

Explaining the Gap: Visualizing One's Predictions Improves Recall and Comprehension of Data

TLDR
It is found that participants who are prompted to reflect on their prior knowledge by predicting and self-explaining data outperform a control group in recall and comprehension and persist when participants have moderate or little prior knowledge on the datasets.

Improving Quantitative Studies of International Conflict: A Conjecture

We address a well-known but infrequently discussed problem in the quantitative study of international conflict: Despite immense data collections, prestigious journals, and sophisticated analyses,
