Abstract

The transformation of the symbolic landscape of Northern Ireland is an important arena for identification, conflict, political discourse, peacebuilding, and community development in Northern Ireland. The Mural Mapping Project uses geographic information systems (GIS) technology and statistical and qualitative methods of inquiry to analyze murals and other ethnic and political displays in West Belfast and the Greater Shankill Road area, such as memorial gardens, monuments, sculptures, and other forms of public art.
