UN International Human Development Indicators Map

 

This application made by the UNDP, visualizes international human development indicators on an interactive web map with associated charts and graphs. The tool visualizes the level of development using human development indices, and allows for many interesting interactive tricks. For example, rolling over the legend will highlight those areas that fall under that categorization. Other forms of visualization are possible, such as adding proportional symbols on the map. Animations can also be performed from 1980-2011. Rolling over of a country will highlight it in a chart showing all countries to better understand the relative position. Many more functions are possible. This tool was made using StatSilk (link), a set of software used for creating visualizations and interactive mapping applications, primarily operating through Flash.
