Visualizing Small Arms & Ammunition Import / Export

Demo of the latest Chrome experiment which allows you to see global small arms and ammunition trade in an interactive 3D environment.

“The tool was produced by Google’s Creative Lab team in collaboration with theIgarape Institute. More than 1 million data points on imports and exports of small arms, light weapons and ammunition between 1992 and 2010 and across 250 states and territories across the world were provided by the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) small arms database. The visualization reveals patterns and trends in imports and exports of arms and ammunition across the world, making it easy to explore how they relate to conflicts worldwide.”
