The major outputs are:

  • a series of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) maps of deaths related to the conflict and physical memorials in public spaces;
  • interactive Google maps displaying information on physical memorials and deaths as a result of the conflict;
  • a virtual educational space, developed in Second Life and backed-up in OpenSim, which allows users to interact with information and 3D models of physical memorials; and
  • short videos of a selection of physical memorials.

The links below contain further infomation and the resoures.

view buttonIntroduction
Introduction to the 'Visualising the Conflict' project, funded by the AHRC.

view buttonGoogle Map of Physical Memorials
A Google Map of Ireland with an interactive overlay of the location of physical memorials to the conflict. The 'vew' button (to the right) opens the main / default Google map (and Google Street View). However, there are also five different versions of this map available on a separate Web page.

view buttonD R A F T Google Map of Deaths
A DRAFT Google Map with an interactive overlay of the location of deaths as a result of the conflict. Due to possible delays in downloading the pointer information for the large number of deaths in the database, this map has been set to open without any points displayed. Users have to select the information they wish to see displayed on the map. Important: Before using the map for the first time, please read the note about this Google map.

view buttonGIS Maps
A set of GIS maps, in various formats, displaying information about deaths due to the conflict (1969-2001) and physical memorials to the conflict, that users can view or download.
[An example of the new layout for the Web pages.]

view buttonGIS Tables
Page with a list of the GIS tables, in various formats, that users can view or download.

view buttonGIS Graphs
Page with a list of the GIS graphs, in various formats, that users can view or download.

view buttonVirtual Educational Space
A guide and introduction to the layout, and content, of the information available via Second Life (and the backup in OpenSim). The guide also contains information on how to access the virtual educational space in Second Life.

view buttonVideo Footage
Video footage of a selection of physical memorials (temp list). This footage is included to compliment the still photographs in the memorials database, the street view embedded with the Google map, and also the 3D models in Second Life. The video clips will give users a better sense of the environment in which the memorials are situated.

view buttonOther Project Outputs
A list, with links to documents, of other outputs produced as part of the project. The outputs include: Project Guides; Conference Paper; Conference Presentations; Other Presentations; Virtual Presentations; and Other Publicity Materials.
