Media Data

Media Development in Pakistan

Client – Action Resource, Foundation for Open Society Institute of Pakistan

We designed and developed a web-based mapping portal that visualizes media development efforts in Pakistan from 2007 to 2012. The project was sponsored by Foundation for Open Society Institute, Pakistan (FOSIP). The maps contain data that was voluntarily submitted by 15 organizations listed on the website. It is aimed to identify gaps or duplication of efforts in media development domain in Pakistan.

On the left-pan the media development efforts are categorised into themes. By clicking on each theme the corresponding map layer is loaded in the main section. By hovering mouse over a region, a corresponding pie chart appears at the right top to display comparison of the media efforts done in the given region against the whole. This shows interesting trend of over or under focused areas.
