Southeast Asia Militant Atlas (SEA Militant Atlas)
The Southeast Asia Militant Atlas (SEA Militant Atlas) is an interactive map designed to provide researchers with a consolidated database of all terrorist-related incidents in Southeast Asia. SEA Militant Atlas is maintained by researchers from the International Centre for Political Violence and Terrorism Research (ICPVTR).
The team of researchers began collecting information about terrorism from 2014 because it is the year the Islamic State (IS) was formally established. Since that year, we have recorded more than 1,000 unique IS-related incidents in Southeast Asia.
ICPVTR hopes that the Southeast Asia Militant Atlas can become an additional tool for the analysis of militancy in SEA for regional terrorism researchers and elsewhere.
Details of the methodology of this project can be accessed via the downloadable codebook found on this page. This codebook contains the following key information for users:
- Introduction to and origins of the SEA Militant Atlas.
- The data collection methodology used to populate the interactive map.
- The variables collected and how they are coded in the SEA Militant Atlas’s database.
- A guide to conducting hotspot analysis.
