The Globe of Economic Complexity

The Globe of Economic Complexity is an interactive 3D map that visualises 15 trillion dollars of world trade. Created by Owen Cornec, who was a data visualisation fellow at Harvard University at the time, it presents an insurmountable amount of data in such a way that any layman can comprehend it.

This is a stunning example of how creativity and technology can be combined to represent complex topics in such ways that it becomes more than the sum of just its parts.
