Researcher A.J. Jongman, Interdisciplinary Research Programme (PIOOM), Leiden University, The Netherlands OSS ’01: For a brilliant combination of research, insight, and data visualization, in partnership with those associated with the Interdisciplinary Research Programme (PIOOM), resulting in the creation of the World Conflict & Human Rights Map 2000 that portrays so effectively the global conditions of instability that no great nation can ignore.
For many years, this map was the single most popular element of the OSS “Goodie Bag” that grew over time to be a full briefcase with books and such. We are trying to get ODT Maps to take the map over from the Leiden program and its subsidizer, the Goals for Americas Foundation. Below is Researcher Jongman’s contribution to OSS ’01.
