Visualizing Palestine creates data-driven tools to advance a factual, rights-based narrative of the Palestinian-Israeli issue. Our researchers, designers, technologists, and communications specialists work in partnership with civil society actors to amplify their impact and promote justice and equality.

Launched in 2012, VP is the first portfolio of Visualizing Impact (VI) an independent, non-profit laboratory for innovation at the intersection of data science, technology, and design.

Adapting and developing open source technologies to apply to social justice movements is central to VP's approach.

Since our brains are narratively and visually wired, design has the power to elevate data to a higher level of openness and accessibility.

Most of the data VP uses is publicly available from credible international, national, and local human rights and civil society organizations. The research team also has the capability to scrape and analyze data using information technology tools.

It is so invigorating to watch our new generations who constantly continue to prove Golda Meir’s wishful thinking that “the old will die and the young will forget” so very wrong and stupid. A big salute to this amazing initiative that deserves all our admiration and unconditional support. Well done Visualizing Palestine team.

Simply necessary, because the status quo is intolerable. We need the public opinion to put pressure on the international community to enforce international laws. We all have an individual and collective responsibility to protect each other and ensure human rights. Let the truth come to light.

Visualizing Palestine documents all sources used. That contributes to the transparency of the research done by the VP team. Reliable infografics data furthermore strengthens the arguments that I bring forward when sharing VP visualizations. VP combines precise research with appealing storytelling. Stories to be told are illustrated by confidable infographics based on facts. Thank you Visualizing Palestine for providing me with an important and useful means to share information on Palestine.
