Arab Spring

A data visualisation of the Arab Spring, the series of demonstrations, riots, coups and even wars in North Africa and Middle East from 2010 to 2012. I made this large-scale poster as a school assignment. It focuses on the first 130 days of the events as it was made during the spring of 2011.

The radial lines represent different countries and time progresses outwards from centre. The symbols represent events like demonstrations, self immolations, resignations of ministers, governments or heads of state and foreign air strikes.

You can get a bit better view of the poster by clicking the first image and zooming in.
