Conflict Tracking System

Conflict Tracking System

The Sentinel Conflict Tracking System is a data visualization platform that helps display conflicts being tracked by the Sentinel Project around the world. The platform presents an interactive display model that allows visitors to its website to be able to view and explore the root causes, relationships and operational processes behind an early warning released by the organization. Research Analysts at the Sentinel Project use Sentinel CTS to input data from reliable sources to track SOCs with the help of a visual time-line that enables them to track the emergence and development of conflicts more closely. Sentinel CTS also shows correlations on how incidents are related to one another according to how they are tagged. The system also allows the public to submit datapoints which are then assessed by data analysts for validity. Sentinel CTS is a deployment of the Ushahidi platform.
