Launch Visual Maps
The visual maps indicate direct affiliations between groups, funders, and individuals. Any one of the following criteria is considered sufficient to justify linking one group to another:
The reader will notice many links between groups whose primary activities are in separate realms (e.g., links between anti-war groups and environmentalist groups). This is because groups frequently cross “categories” and lend their support to other leftwing groups and causes. The left is composed of vast networks of groups, funders, and individuals whose names appear again and again in a multitude of venues, aiding one another in a variety of crusades. Because these networks are so large, the maps in this database cannot comprehensively show the full extent of the interconnections. The maps are limited only to the names of the groups, funders, and individuals that are profiled in the database. As the database grows, the maps will expand as well.
The user can view items which seem to be off the page by dragging the whitespace of the maps. Please be patient as the applet can take between 1-3 minutes to load.
