UCDP Update Alert 22:
UCDP releases new web-based platform
UCDP has launched a new web-based platform freely available online at ucdp.uu.se replacing the old encyclopedia.
This new platform enables the user to explore, navigate, research and download all of the UCDP data from one location. Featuring state of the art data mining and visualization techniques, the new platform integrates all UCDP data, from micro-level geo-coded event data to the actor and conflict descriptions previously available in the UCDP Encyclopedia (UCDP database).
This is the first release of the new UCDP platform, featuring the visualization and exploration portions of the new platform as well as a new improved dataset download page at ucdp.uu.se/downloads. Subsequent updates of the platform will add interactive download features as well as an API, enabling direct machine-to-machine data access. This is scheduled for early fall 2016, coinciding with the annual update of UCDP data.
Like any other UCDP products, the new web platform is free of charge, no registration required.
