The ICEWS project has coded event data for the twenty-nine states in the US Pacific Command's Area of Responsibility.
ICEWS' version of TABARI extracts each of these variables from a news document and then codes them according to actor dictionaries developed by the ICEWS project and an action dictionary provided by CAMEO.
Let us begin with a news document that reads, "Thailand severed relations with Laos today." ICEWS' TABARI would extract a date (whatever date the news story was reported), a source actor (Thailand), a target actor (Laos), and an action (severed relations).
When possible, ICEWS' TABARI can code three-tiered actor coding.
However, with ICEWS' project, this is no longer a problem because of the massive amounts of data collected.
