Globalis

Description: 

Globalis is an interactive world atlas where you decide what is to be displayed on the map. Globalis aims to create an understanding for similarities and differences in human societies, as well as how we influence life on the planet. The data that's displayed is collected by the UN and other international organisations who collect large amounts of statistics each year from all over the world. These statistics cover a wide range of different issues, which are often presented in large reports and tables that are not easily adapted for use in schools. With Globalis, we have made these statistics available in a simpler and more visual format.
