The Observatory of Economic Complexity

September 19, 2012

I’ve always loved the likes of Visual complexity, Information is Beautiful (awesome book) and Worldmapper (I’m looking forward to Londonmapper to go live too) so when I stumbled across The Observatory of Economic Complexity from MIT while researching the island of Mauritius I got very excited indeed. If you’ve not seen it you really should check it out. It’s a powerful tool for research and teaching, using infographics to reveal imports, exports and economic complexities.   Shortly afterwards I found IfItWereMyHome.com, another awesome site that lets you compare statistics for two different countries including HIV, electricity consumption and a map that compares land area. If you’re a geography or social studies teacher and have not seen these sites make sure you click through.
