AMTI is an interactive, regularly-updated website that hosts analysis, policy exchange, and mapping on maritime security issues and regional disputes. It aims to promote transparency and generate opportunities for cooperation. The site reaches audiences worldwide in Asia, Europe, and at home in the United States. It has received over half a million page views and has attracted keen interest from governments and the media around the world.
AMTI lets users explore the latest regional developments in the Indo Pacific using interactive maps, read original analysis from top experts in the United States and in Asia, view the long maritime history of the region using an interactive timeline, and explore relevant, annotated primary source documents. It has been shown at congressional briefings and the National Security Council at the White House.
In early April 2015, CSIS’s AMTI made worldwide news by providing the New York Times with exclusive CSIS/DigitalGlobe satellite images of China’s land reclamation project on Mischief Reef in the South China Sea.
