More than three years, ago I have introduced to you an amazing software called Gapminder which enables users to visualize trends through animated bubble charts. The software has a preloaded data about countries all over the world and it lets the user chose what to put on the horizontal and vertical axes. The users can then choose the start time and end time of the data and watch the bubbles move with respect to the time slider.
Well, I don’t think I need to explain more. Watch Professor Hans Rosling, co-founder of Gapminder Foundation use Gapminder and be amazed about how statistics can explain what is happening in our world.
The old post I mentioned above contains a short tutorial on how to use Gapminder.
Gapminder is a free software that can be used online and offline.
