Dynamic refugee atlas of Middle East and North Africa using R statistical language

The United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) registers thousands of refugees worldwide every day.

What have we done?

An atlas was created in R statistical language, which shows the distribution of refugees in the Middle East and North Africa.

Since the atlas is script-based, the maps access the data source dynamically. In this way, the atlas can be updated regularly and provides a spatial planning basis.
