The well known Swedish professor Rosling, known for his amazing TED talks presents his data with the gap minder, a program that allows you to visualize three types of data at the same time across several dimensions, in a static as well dynamic way, showing the temporal evolution.
So what's new? The new gap minder has a beta version that allows to visualize the whole FAO dataset is a quick and meaningful way.
Also the the new version of the mind gap has also a new feature that allows to look at data in a spatial way. It is not a fancy good looking GIS solution but at least a quick way to see what is happening where.
