Georeferencing and Visualizing Italian Migration Data

Investigator  Dr. Teresa Fiore, Visiting Assistant Professor and Lauro De Bosis Fellow 2007-08

As the point of departure of a massive emigration between the 19th and 20th centuries and the point of arrival of high flows of immigration today, demographic data concerning Italy's migrations lends itself to a geographical visualization on such a global scale. To better emphasize the differences in the continental scale data, three cartographic techniques were used: cartogram, 3D extrusion, and line thickness weighting.
