Geospatial Data

Aggregate geospatial data compatible with the GDL subnational regions across the world. We provide yearly average temperature and precipitation data that can easily be linked to our other indicators.

Map visualisations

The geospatial world maps allow the visualization of any aggregate, geospatial indicator across all countries for which data is available at a given point in time. Subnational indices can also be displayed on the map showing differences within countries.

Data tables

We provide easy to navigate data tables displaying the aggregate, geospatial indicator information in a grid-like format of rows and columns. Information is available along three dimensions: (i) country, (ii) time, and (iii) choice of indicator(s).
