This project maps Crisis Group’s CrisisWatch publication, which provides succinct updates on some 70 global conflicts on the first of each month. A jQuery datepicker allows users to view the last 12 months of CrisisWatch data. I made this primarily with leaflet.js, and the underlying map is from Mapbox. There is also a mobile version that relies on jQuery Mobile.
Edit, 17 May 2016: Crisis Group appears to have retired the CrisisWatch map. An archived version is available here.
