Environmental Performance on Google Maps
Yale University's Environmental Performance Index (EPI) ranks countries on performance indicators covering both environmental public health and ecosystem vitality.
The 2012 Country Performance Map visualises EPI indicators using Google Maps. The map shows a heat map of each country's EPI ranking and allows the user to view the EPI's other performance indicators via a drop-down menu.
Users can mouse-over a country to reveal the country's ranking and ranking trend in an information window. Clicking on a country takes the user to the country's dedicated country profile page where all the performance indicators for the country can be viewed on one page.
