This page contains a list, with details of the various formats, of the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) maps that have been produced as part of the AHRC 'Visualising the Conflict' Project.
All maps were compiled and prepared by Luke Kelleher, then a Research Associate (GIS) working with CAIN. There are 24 categories of maps, listed below, with links to separate Web pages where the individual maps are listed (202 maps in total). All maps were sized A4 (approximately). GIS software was used to produce TIFF versions (A4 approx; 300dpi) which are available on request. Three versions of each map have been made available below:
The maps relate to deaths due to the conflict and also physical memorials to the conflict. The information on deaths is taken (with permission) from Malcolm Sutton's Index of Deaths. The information on commemoration comes from the database of physical memorials.
In addition to the 'static' maps a number of animations have also been prepared. These animations are made up of a number of maps, which are shown sequentially with a short time delay, and are designed to highlight, for example, changes over time. The animations are based on GIFF (.gif) images and have been set to play once. They can be replayed on most Web browsers by either reloading the image or clicking on the link a second time.

Users are free to download the maps (and other information) for 'private study'; this includes use in student essays, dissertations, etc. The maps can also be downloaded for other educational use, for example as part of a one-off PowerPoint presentations. The maps should NOT be reproduced on any Web site. Commercial use, for example in academic journal articles, or books, or magazines, will require the permission of CAIN and Land & Property Services.

The 202 maps are categorised into the following 24 sets. The links below are to separate pages where the individual maps are presented. (Click on either the map set title or the thumbnail map to view the full list of maps in each set.) As described in the introduction above, users can download the maps in three formats.
