Atlas of Legal Needs Surveys

This summer I had the pleasure of working with CORE GIS to build a web map for the World Justice Project. One of their ongoing programs is to aggregate surveys of unmet justice needs from all over the world, and we made them an overview map to present the data:

The map and filters are automatically populated from a file that WJP maintains, to give them a straightforward way to update data without having to engage a consultant each time. The underlying data is more impressive than anything we built, though: the screenshot really is highlighting a 129,000 person face-to-face survey conducted the year before COVID.
