Map of State Responses in Lebanon

The State Response mapping developed by Lebanon Support, in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme, tracks state apparatuses actions relevant to security issues.
  • The map is continuously updated.
  • Each mapped state response is based on a typology devised by Lebanon Support.
  • The objective of the map is to explore state responses by providing accurate data and relevant information on security operations happening on the territory.
Tips for using our map:
  • To get the most out of our map, make sure to read the map legend, and our typology below.
  • To view a state response that took place in a specific location, first, find the location on the map by clicking on the relevant cluster. Then, you can click on the individual marker to explore the state response.
  • If more than one state response took place in the exact same location, you can click on the individual marker, and use the arrows and numbers at the bottom of the pop up box to explore the various state responses mapped in this location.
  • Our filters above can help you find state responses by location, acting body, method, objective, type of response, date, and more. At least one filter must be used for a search.

Individual state response marker
Individual state responses are marked at their location. Some state responses occur over a number of days and may have a prolonged time frame.
Click on the individual marker to see a pop-up box giving a brief summary of the response, with its type. For a longer description of the event, click on the event’s title at the top of the description box.
Clustering

A cluster is a grouping of state response markers. Cluster marker colors indicate the number of state response grouped within that cluster.
Clustering works by dividing the map into a square grid and grouping the markers into their respective squares. The size of a square in the grid changes at different zoom levels.
If more than one state response took place in the exact same location, you can click on the individual marker, and use the arrows and numbers at the bottom of the pop up box to explore the many state responses mapped in this location.
The number indicated on the cluster is the number of individual state response grouped within the cluster.

The color of the cluster changes based on the average of maximum and minimum of all state responses clusters shown on the map.
