More About Our Tools
Our flagship tool, the Atlas of Economic Complexity, allows users to explore global trade flows across markets, track these dynamics over time and discover new growth opportunities for every country. Since its launch in 2013, the Atlas has reached more than 1.5 million people and has active users in almost every country worldwide. Released in 2021, Metroverse takes our research to the city level, providing insights into economic composition, specialization, position in the industry space, and growth opportunities for 1,000+ cities. In addition, we've developed sub-national Atlases, country dashboards, interactive stories, open-source software packages, and working prototypes, all of which can be found on the Viz Hub.
Our digital tools have been featured in various media outlets including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Bloomberg, Financial Times, and the Harvard Gazette. In 2019 we were the 2nd runner up for the Digital Humanities Best Data Visualization Award and were short-listed for an Information is Beautiful Award in 2018 and 2019.
