Find all the countries of the world in the updated map

We have updated the map in gapminder world. We removed all “former countries” and “ad-hoc” areas, but included all small countries and territies. We included even the smallest countries and territories, such as Pitcairn (where the mutineers of bounty settled) and Canada’s somewhat less known neighbour St.Pierre-et-Miquelon.

You find the map under the tab “map” in Gapminder World. You can also follow this link which takes you directly there, although it should be noted that the direct link is slower than normal since additional map-related data has to be loaded.

New feature in Gapminder World

We have added a menu to the right of the Gapminder World to improve the usability. This new feature allows you to directly from the graph access information about the graph, find relevant links, watch tutorials, participate in discussions about the data, get tips on how to use the graph, and much more.

Go to the graph to see the new feature.

We have just started to experiment with this feature so for now we only have included a few points, but more will be added with time. Comments and suggestions are warmly welcome.
