ImpactHack Project #1: Interactive World Map
The U.S. has a 24/7 diplomatic presence around the world at embassies, consulates, and missions. Diplomats are working around the world on a variety of vital issues to advance U.S. security and national interests. Develop an interactive world map that explores where, when, and why diplomacy happens and the topics addressed by multilateral efforts.
