World Bank Launches Climate Data Portal

And it’s pretty clunky if you ask me.

Hey, at least they’re trying. And incorporating motion chart is a good move, though I would have used google maps for the main mapping interface.

The biggest problem from my perspective is the technical jargon they use for most of their data without any context. To be effective, a user should understand the map within 10-15 seconds. Try doing that with the “adjusted savings: particulate emissions damage (% of GNI) data.

um…thought so.
