CIMA, in partnership with the Open Society Foundations, announced the publication of an interactive map featuring digital media indicators from OSF's Mapping Digital Media project. The project examines the global opportunities and risks created by the transition from traditional to digital media. Covering 60 countries, the project includes data on how these changes affect news about political, economic, and social affairs. Click here to visit the Open Society Foundations' website to see the full version of each country's report. CIMA worked with the Open Society Foundations to identify the most important digital media indicators in the series of reports. The mapping tool allows for the visualization, via desktop and tablet devices, of these indicators from each report and enables the comparison of digital media penetration in various countries. The map can be embedded in the source code on other websites and shared via social media. We hope that it will be a useful tool for exploring the data included in the Mapping Digital Media reports!  The map can be accessed, along with CIMA research reports and videos of CIMA discussions and events, at Also on the website is a comprehensive bibliographic database of media assistance resources with information on more than 1,100 reports, articles, books, and manuals related to the media assistance field.  For more information on the Center for International Media Assistance, please explore our website at, or contact us at
