Complexity Mapping and Visualization

Danny Burns and Conflict Map

The analysis of a problem begins with the ability to see it, understand it, and be able to communicate that understanding to others.  Often, this begins by being able to formulate diverse data in a coherent way.  This theme will show how different methods can be used to generate visual representations of complex situations.  These methods are story telling in a visual way and provide a richer way (qualitatively different, more complete and helpful) to grapple effectively with complexity and complex systems that can be more comprehensive, clarify interconnections and patterns and show the dynamism of the system possibly suggesting helpful interventions.
