Browse the Archive

  1. Visit our Archive page.
  2. Click on the text box marked Search Archive
  3. A list of tags will appear below the text box. The list is scrollable and is organised by a section of TOPIC tags followed by LOCATION and EVENT tags.
  4. You can keep adding tags relevant to your research to narrow down your search results.
  5. Typing in the text box will autofill text based on our Tags for the topic you wish to research.
  6. If we do not have a specific tag for your search term, you can run a simple text search for it.
  7. Click on the question mark (?) button to receive more advanced help options on the Archive page.

Browse Map

  1. An alternative method of finding relevant photographs is to browse our MAP, which includes filters for both Timeline and Topic.
  2. Explore the map by clicking and dragging your mouse. You can also scroll to zoom in or out.
  3. Clicking on the red marker circles will pop up a miniature of the corresponding photograph.
  4. Users may filter which markers appear by isolating Events as well.

Browse News

  1. Visit our News page.
  2. You will find a page of ongoing Events.
  3. Selecting any Event will isolate that Event and produce recent images for it, in reverse chronological order. A full Event page also has descriptive text provided.
  4. If you scroll to the bottom of the main News page, you can access a Regional map.
  5. Clicking on any region isolates it for you and presents you with two modes for viewing it on the top-right – ‘Events’ or ‘General’.
  6. A Regional Events view offers you a view of ongoing conflicts and events in your region of interest, with the more actively uploaded events on top. The Regional General View, on the other hand, simply offers you the region’s photographs in reverse ronological order (by date taken) without Event titles.
