Welcome to the Mapping Globalization Project!

The Mapping Globalization website is intended for everyone interested in globalization. The main goal of the website is to make empirical work on globalization as widely accessible as possible.

The website offers an expanding set of resources for students, instructors, and researchers, and provides a forum for empirical research on globalization. We are especially interested in raw data and in the visualization of such data, including maps and animations.

We have adopted a comprehensive definition of globalization that is simply based on geographically expanding networks of transactions, where transactions may be of any type, and may have occurred at any time. This naturally supports a strongly historical perspective that includes trade, migration, transportation, communication, empires, and so on.

We welcome additional materials for inclusion and suggestions for links to related resources.

The Mapping Globalization web site, or MG for short, has three main sections:


Image representing maps
Geographical perspectives on globalization


Image representing narratives
Historical perspectives with animation

Data and Analysis

Image representing data and analysis
Datasets, reports, and studies


Some animations require Flash Player Version 8.

Course-Restricted Maps

For copyright reasons, access to some of the maps in the map collection is restricted to students enrolled in specific courses at Princeton University. Thumbnails of these maps will nevertheless appear in the results returned by a Category Query.

Instructors at Princeton may arrange to gain access to these course-restricted maps by contacting Professor Miguel Centeno.


Mapping Globalization Project

The Mapping Globalization Project is a partnership of Princeton University and the University of Washington.

For contact information, see Contacts; for a listing of project team members who have uploaded content to the website, see Staff.
