September 15, 2017, at South Ukrainian National Pedagogical University named after K. D. Ushynsky, on the initiative of Professor Olena Vasylivna Liseenko, Professor of the Department of Philosophy, Sociology and Management of Socio-Cultural Activities, there was a presentation of the new analytical platform of the Ukrainian Scientific Institute of Harvard University "MAPA. Digital Atlas of Ukraine" of Candidate of Sociological Sciences, Associate Researcher of the Ukrainian Science Institute of Harvard University Victoria Sereda.
The project "MAPA. The Digital Atlas of Ukraine", through new forms of spatial visualization of historical or sociological data, offers unique opportunities for scientists planning to explore Ukrainian society. It has two branches, which can be conventionally called historical and modern. The modern part includes the "History and Identity" and "Language" modules, as well as individual visualization of statistical data for 1989-2014. The project allows to apply simultaneously spatial and diachronic analysis, to create own maps for student's abstracts, scientific publications or dissertations, to form new research questions and tasks.
