Making Complex Data Simple and Beautiful
Now having a clear understanding of our underlying data sets, it was incumbent on us to find beautiful and simple ways to visualize this data. A combination of choropleth maps, line and bar charts, and simple, summarized statistics enabled us to do this elegantly—even across widely-varied data outputs.
Most of the visualization display a range of data over countries and years. With this data we're able to create an animated map to show human development indicators for countries across the world as they change over time. Additionally, users can compare the rise and fall of human development indicators with a country ranking tool.
Breaking New Ground for Visualizing Human Development Indicators
This is now the best source of human development indicator data on the web, and since we also added the ability to export the maps, charts, and raw data, these data and visualizations are freely available for anyone to use and analyze.
