About the Viz Hub: Over the last decade, our portfolio of visualization tools has emerged through the close collaboration between the Growth Lab’s Digital Development & Design team and our Academic and Applied Research units. Our flagship tool, the Atlas of Economic Complexity, exemplifies this collaboration by showcasing research, datasets and pedagogy developed across multidisciplinary teams and countless iterations. Since its launch in 2013, the Atlas has been complimented by sub-national Atlases, country dashboards, interactive stories, open source software packages and working prototypes.


All projects found on the Viz Hub are built in-house by the Growth Lab’s Digital Development & Design Team, an interdisciplinary group that connects economic and policy research with best practices from information design, software development, data science, product management and digital humanities. We believe that easy-to-use software can be a vital channel to effectively interpret and analyze complex concepts.
