Video Tour: World Factbook Dashboard by IBM is data visualization heaven


If you love data visualization, this one's going to blow your mind: I just found an incredible IBM demo, called World Factbook Dashboard.

It basically takes a ton of demographic and economic data (from the CIA World Factbook, I presume) and presents it in several beautiful ways that (mostly) make instant sense.

This is one of those rare cases where screenshots simply would not do, so I rolled up my sleeves and took the World Factbook Dashboard for a whirlwind ten-minute video tour with some really funny moments and lots of interesting facts and figures. Watch it after the jump!
