Two interactive maps tackling serious issues open today’s Digital Cartography, that includes, of course, the latest cartographic narratives published in news portals and organizations.

The new interactive map launched by Amnesty International uses the powerful voices of eyewitnesses and civilians to trace the South Sudan conflict from its origins in Juba in December 2013 up to the present. “Nowhere safe: Civilians under attack in South Sudan” also links to a petition calling on both factions to ensure their forces protect civilians and guarantee humanitarian access.

The second opening pick comes from Physicians for Human Rights, after the organization released a statement yesterday, saying that Syrian forces have attacked the healthcare system in opposition-held areas over the past three years, resulting in the death of more than 460 health professionals and widespread destruction to hospitals and clinics. To document this, PHR released an interactive map tracking the violations.

Here’s the full list of interactive maps:
