Map #5 | Discovery arms import & export

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013 | andrius

This time in map gallery we have 3D visualization which shows transfer of small arms, light weapons and ammunition across 250 nation states and territories around the world between 1992 and 2010.

I really like this interactive globe, 3D directions and colorful symbols. Arms export and import thematic is deeply related with today`s situation in conflict zones like Syria or some of the Africa countries, and we can actually identify connections between these zones and countries which support them with weapons. Maps become one of the best tool to visualize these connections and geography of arms trade. Special effects like 3D and interactive globes creates visual effect that is interesting for people, that`s why these effects are good solution when you want to spread information in more effective ways.
