What is the Supreme Court Mapping Project?

The Supreme Court Mapping Project, produced by Baltimore Law prof Colin Starger, gives one a way to analyze and predict developments in Supreme Court doctrine with simple visual charts that cover 1st, 4th, 5th, 8th and 14th Amendment doctrine as well as the commerce power, patents, civil procedure, and more. The software allows users to create sophisticated, interactive maps of Supreme Court doctrine by plotting relationships among majority, concurring and dissenting opinions. With the software, users can both visualize how different lines of Supreme Court opinions have evolved and employ animation to make interactive presentations. Very interesting.
