Here’s 11,904 rows of new data from the US Department of State’s 2018-2019 Foreign Military Training Report
This weekend, security and human rights wonks received an early Christmas present from the U.S. Department of State: the Foreign Military Training and DoD Engagement Activities of Interest, 2018-2019. We turned it into data you can use.
Security Force Monitor has crunched 5,600 pages of State Department PDFs to create new version of the U.S. foreign military training data. Today we release a tool to explore these 200,000 rows of data.
Can computers help Security Force Monitor’s researchers increase the speed and accuracy of extracting relevant data about security forces from the text of news articles and reports?
