OECD has launched a new interactive tool for visualizing and analyzing regional statistics using maps and graphs. Using a subset of OECD Regional Statistics database, users can now see and understand a selection of social and economic data at regional levels within OECD countries. They may use the mapping function to pan across and zoom into the map data and select regions that can then be viewed and compared in multiple graph formats simultaneously. This new tool is the result of cooperation between OECD and the National Centre for Visual Analytics (NCVA) at Linköping University, Sweden.
