Free tool - create interactive thematic maps (world)
To create a thematic world map, copy & paste your data in the box above the table (CTRL+V, or right-click -> PASTE). Data needs to be structured with country names in the first column, and data in subsequent columns. Data can be copied from a web-page (e.g. Wikipedia), Excel, or a PDF file. To export the map as an image, click the 'export icon' in the bottom-left corner, and click the 'table' icon to show/hide the data import screen. Works best with Internet Explorer or Firefox - read more. Software used: StatPlanet Plus.
Please note that this is an experimental tool which is still under development.
Multiple columns of data can be imported, but results vary. Copying and pasting multiple columns using the Chrome browser may not work. Table headers (indicator names) are not always correctly linked to the data column.
