Mapping Global Migration Data
Global Migration Data maps migration patterns around the world on a 3D globe. The map shows the number of migrants to and from each country and which countries they traveled to or from. The data comes from the UN Dept of Economic & Social Affairs for the years 1990, 2000, 2010 and 2013.
Global Migration Data is very easy to use. Simply select a country from the drop-down menu. You can then select to view either inbound or outbound migration for your chosen country. The time-line at the bottom of the map allows you to select which year's migration data you wish to visualize on the globe.
The 3D globe shows the spatial patterns of migration, visualizing which countries around the world migrants traveled to or from for your selected country. The dashboard below the map shows the total number of migrants (inbound or outbound depending on your current choice) and the number of countries migrants are from or the number of countries migrants moved to.
