Jane’s Terrorism and Insurgency Centre is the most comprehensive and authoritative source for the latest global terrorism-related news, analysis, reference and overview of worldwide terrorist activities as they happen. The database includes detailed profile assessments of over 240 terrorist groups across the world. It allows decision makers from multi-national companies and major political players to build up an intelligence picture of areas where they have business or political interests. The map operates using ESRI’s ArcIMS Geographical Information System (GIS), which is a software tool for delivering dynamic maps through the web.

Jane’s Terrorism and Insurgency Centre:

* Interprets events geospatially by combining the extensive events search capabilities of the Jane’s Terrorism and Insurgency Centre Events Database using ESRI’s ArcIMS (GIS).
* Deconstructs landmark terrorist operations and highlights details such as tactics, logistics, execution and emergency response.
* Groups data by geographical vicinity rather than by more conventional political and regional boundaries, instantly producing a visual relationship between previously un-associated incidents.
* Builds an integrated intelligence picture by exporting events and geospatially fusing them to third party content.
* Helps individuals to illustrate reports and briefings with personalised maps based on criteria such as group, country of origin, tactics, targets, political, religious or other affiliations with additional geographical and political layers.
* Builds an integrated intelligence picture by exporting events and geospatially fusing them to third party content.
