This is a geological visualization of the Good Country Index which is originally created by Simon Anholt.
Q: What's all this about, then?
A: The Good Country Index tries to measure how much each country on earth contributes to the planet and to the human race.From FAQ of the Good Country Index
As you can see from the above link, the original data is provided as interactive sortable table. I thought that we can find more interesting knowledge, especially how the highly ranked countries are distributed on the world and how the distribution changes with the indicators. It motivated me visualizing the data on the world map.
In this map, a country filled by more vivid color means that it is ranked higher. Duller color means lower. Black means that the data for the country is not provided in the index.
You can change the indicator by the buttons positioned above the map. Also you can check the ranking in current indicator on the table at the right.
I would like to thank following people who made this work be done.
