The interactive mapping used on this site is based on Social Explorer, a product developed by Prof. Andrew Beveridge and Ahmed Lacevic at the City University of New York. Social Explorer is is a web-based application that creates fast, intuitive, and visually appealing maps and reports. In 2010 it was given an award for Outstanding Reference Source for 2010 by the Reference and User Services Association (RUSA) a division of the American Library Association.

The site allows users to zoom in on maps, zoom out and pan around. It also allows you to share maps, print maps out and to create animations of change over time. For more information on using Social Explorer take the tour on the Social Explorer site.
