This is an online interactive feature for viewing the Maritime Assertiveness Times Series data covering China, the Philippines and Vietnam's behavior in the South China Sea from 1970 to 2015. It provides dynamic maps and graphs, which are adjustable by widgets that visually capture the buildup over time of assertive state behavior in the South China Sea. This virtual component serves as a tool offering custom visualizations of the MATS data and illustrates the levels of contestation between 1970 and 2015, showing periods of both continuity and change. Through this online resource, the project offers readers the chance to explore key trends and relationships encased in the data and investigate the dimensions of the South China Sea conflict that interest them most.
