gapminder software

I don't remember where I first saw this wonderful Hans Rosling video from TED. By five minutes in I was totally hooked on his energetic, hands-on data visualization and kind of blown away by what he was saying about the developing world.

Now Google has released a Flash version of the program used to create those visualizations [via Dean Armstrong].

The mission of Gapminder, a non-profit founded by Hans Gosling, is to create software to help visualize human development.

that is great.

the 'children per woman (fertility rate)' v. 'Population' yields some interesting results - especially in china.
