The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) in the UK provides travel advice to British citizens regarding international travel. The folks at the Guardian – probably the most revered name in print media in Britain – have put together a travel advisory map as well as a table that lets users quickly understand the travel advisory for a particular country. The map was created using Google Maps and Google Fusion tables.
You should keep in mind that the FCO advisories are usually detailed with specific local safety warnings and the map may not portray correctly. The entire information is available for download though. From the table you can download the travel advice for each country.
