Hans Rosling describes world health and economic developments using statistical animations to illustrate how the state of the world has changed over time.

Hans Rosling is professor of international health at Sweden's world-renowned Karolinska Institute. (quote from Google)

It's compelling.

Chris,

Hans Rosling and his colleagues at gapminder.org do very compelling work. They've developed effective ways using flash animations to tell important stories with numbers. I've commented about this work elsewhere in this discussion forum, which you might find interesting.

Steve,

Thanks. I'd seen the other thread, but didn't make the connection with Gapminder.

Hans did an excellent job of presenting the visualizations in a manner that buttressed his points, engaging the audience with the material.

I haven't been able to find any active links to the tools used to generate the visualizations so far, but will continue to look.

Chris
