ABOUT US

Images are one of the most effective means when it comes to describing reality. Therefore, our aim is to provide a thorough understanding of global events, issues and scenarios just by glimpsing at a map or a graph. We provide an interpretation of a specific phenomenon by highlighting both the dynamics that led to the current situation and how future developments and trends might unfold. This is a very ambitious goal we have, that is to provide long term projections regarding each topic through the analysis of data. Basically, we work by putting together elements and data that on the surface seem to be far apart from each other. On the contrary, their interaction provides plausible answers to the phenomenon we are investigating. Thus, we can help institutions in their analysis and research on any kind of topic. Our job is to point out the key elements by synthesizing and highlighting them on a map. Consequently, we provide specific maps for organizations, firms, schools, magazines, newspapers and academic journals.

Since geopolitics can be applied to every field of analysis, we believe that any world phenomena can be mapped!

SOFTWARE WE USE

In order to produce the most and accurate maps, we always use a powerful, open-source software called QGIS, which allows us to work on reliable and georeferenced data. This guarantees that the final product actually represents places and distances for what they really are.

Once we have achieved geographical precision, to improve the graphic effect of the phenomena we want to represent, we use another open-source, user-friendly software named Inkscape. This software allows us to work on graphic details with no risk of altering the geographical precision previously obtained.
