Maritime Awareness Project (MAP)
The National Bureau of Asian Research and Sasakawa USA have partnered on an innovative platform for analyses and data on maritime security called the Maritime Awareness Project (MAP). The MAP portal combines interactive mapping technology with rigorous analyses from the world’s leading maritime experts to serve as the authoritative resource on maritime issues.

There are differing scales and scopes of maritime disputes throughout the world. In the Asia-Pacific, competing claims in the East and South China Seas have become intractable features of the security landscape. Confrontations between claimants, both at sea and in the diplomatic arena, have escalated in recent years as historical narratives collide with modern geopolitics. Given this pressing reality, MAP begins its exploration of maritime security issues in the Asia-Pacific region, to be followed later by an expansion into other bodies of water throughout the world.

The purpose of the project is to set maritime developments in broader strategic perspective, facilitating a better understanding of economic and security interests at sea. In doing so, MAP equips the media, policymakers, scholars, and the wider public with a comprehensive tool to discover the full complexities of the maritime domain.
