The World Bank eAtlas of Global Development is an online, interactive tool that creates maps and graphs of more than 175 development indicators for more than 200 countries. Data for most indicators span several decades. The eAtlas allows users to transform data into customised visual comparisons across time, countries, and regions. Full colour maps and graphs can be compared and exported, while users can also import their own data and use additional features such as timeline graphing and ranking tables. The indicators are grouped into themes that cover critical issues such as poverty; food production; population growth; climate change; international trade; and foreign direct investment.
