Syria Deeply, Covering the Crisis

Syria Deeply is an independent digital media project led by journalists and technologists that explores a new model of storytelling around a global crisis. Our goal is to build a better user experience of the story by adding context to content, using the latest digital tools of the day. Over time the hope is to add greater clarity, deeper understanding and more sustained engagement to the global conversation.

Syria Deeply is a very cool exploration of the Syrian Conflict.  From a digital storytelling standpoint and a international relations student standpoint, I like  the daily executive summaries of the conflict, the map which helps visualize the conflict, and the timeline for looking back on important moments in the conflict. I also like that that header includes a count of how many days have passed thus far in the conflict.  I think for long ongoing stories, the team at Syria Deeply is onto something interesting. Screenshot of Syria Daily homepage on 14 April 2015
