Data Visualization To Improve The World
Can access to information change our perspectives in how we see the world?
Gapminder is a data visualization tool used to highlight statistics about our world to promote the UN Millenium Development goals.
Users can choose to display relevant stats such as life expectancy levels, literacy rates, or GDP per capita, then run these numbers in a timeline. Contextualizing abstract data in this manner allows for an increased understanding of the World, possibly leading to insights and more informed decisions.
