This e-atlas is a free, on-line, interactive tool, which maps and graphs more than 175 indicators from the World Bank’s development database. It is a companion to the Atlas of Global Development, a concise and up-to-date reference for journalists, teachers, students, and anyone interested in better understanding today’s critical development issues. The e-Atlas allows users to: easily and quickly map and chart economic and social indicators; compare country outcomes; export customized, professional quality, full colour maps and graphs; create scalable maps, timeline graphing, and ranking tables; and to import and export data and graphics. Critical issues such as access to water, poverty, food production, population growth, climate change, international trade, and foreign direct investment are covered. Both atlases draw on a global database compiled from the work of the World Bank, other international agencies, and national statistical offices of World Bank member countries.
