The World Protests on Google Maps
Mapping Protest Data is a Google Map of worldwide protests this year. The map uses 2013 protest data from the Global Data of Events.
The heat map shows a high level of protests throughout Europe and the Middle East. If you zoom in on the map you are able can see individual points. You can click on the points to view more information about the specific location and the number of protest events.
The creator of the map, John Beiler, has blogged about how the map was created and even has a theory about the lack of protests shown by the map in the US.
