The Rise and Fall of Global Peace

This week for MakeOverMonday it the Global Peace Index. The original was the classic example of using a map to show changes over time, something that never works very well. When i started to look at the data I saw that the overall global peace score hadn't improved significantly, there were countries , Syria, Libya that had seen large rises. This meant that some countries must have also improved, and so my idea formed. To split the world in two and show both those countries that had declined, but also those that had improved. Once i had that idea, the black and white colour scheme followed. I used the maps as both a navigation tool and as an indication of the division in the world.

  1. The lines in the left/Rise chart tend to decline left-right, while the lines in the right/Fall chart tend to incline. This is at odds with what rise and fall generally mean, creating a cognitive disconnect with what the intent of the whole presentation appears to be.

  2. Global peace, global warming is always been an issue and to be taken care of, I hope this globe becomes a better place to live in.

  3. I read that post and got it fine and useful


  4. Global peace is just a construct to make us look forward to it. It can only happen in an ideal world.
