Maritime Awareness Project

The Maritime Awareness Project (MAP) is an innovative platform for analyses and data on maritime security. The MAP portal provides interactive mapping technology to highlight the complexity and consequences of interstate disputes in the maritime domain. The purpose of the project is to set maritime developments in broader strategic perspective, facilitating a better understanding of economic and security interests at sea. In doing so, MAP equips the media, policymakers, scholars, and the wider public with a comprehensive tool to discover the full complexities of the maritime domain.  The project is funded by the National Bureau of Asian Research and Sasakawa USA.  Professor Fravel serves as the principal investigator.
