dc.description.abstract Colombia has been in continuous civil turmoil since gaining independence from Spain in 1810. With the inauguration of former Colombian President Álvaro Uribe in 2002, the past 14 years have been the longest period of sustained military action against violent extremist groups in Colombia. This 52 year conflict has finally come to an abrupt end on September 26th, 2016. The goal of this thesis is to analyze variation in attack intensity values over time, identify changes in the spatial clustering of high attack intensity values in Colombia, determine locations in Colombia which are potentially more susceptible to growth in number of terrorists, analyze the spatial distribution of terrorism events in Colombia from 2000 – 2014, and comparing Department-level economic data to remotely sensed NDVI values as well as social media data.
