Mapping Worldwide Trade
The Globe of Economic Complexity visualizes 15 trillion dollars of world trade on an interactive WebGL 3d globe. Using the globe you can explore the export markets of countries around the world and the international trade of different products.
Every pixel on the map represents $100m of exports of a different product. The color of each dot represents a different industry. Select a country on the globe and the map shows the country's top ten trade partners.
You can also use the globe to explore the worldwide trade in the different sectors of industry. Select a sector of industry using the menu running along the bottom of the globe and you can view the countries which trade in this product and the volume of that trade in each country.
