Make the data dance

From my friend Darius:

Gapminder takes UN data and visualises it graphically over time. You choose all parameters (life expectancy, personal income, CO2 emissions, broadband penetration) and it maps trends by country over time.

Go to http://graphs.gapminder.org/world/

It certainly does make the data dance.

It’s not new, but it’s still pretty sound.

    I am quite sure that you saw Hans Rosling’s presentation of this data at TED. If not, make sure you take a look: It’s amazing. (the data and the finale)
