Global Peace Index

The Global Peace Index map is a web application that visualizes various indicators that inform the calculation of the Global Peace Index, by Vision for Humanity. The tool uses a world map choropleth, where countries can be highlighted by rolling the mouse over. Selection of countries then displays their relative positions in a number of global peace index indicators in a chart below (here, Russia is selected, and the first indicator, ‘functioning of government’ is shown below, with Russia highlighted in pink). Needless to say, the map is coded in JavaScript.
