Global-i is an interactive globe that displays socio-economic data. It is a Java-based web application developed by Infomagnet and displays various data layers by country. The usual socio-economic factors are included (GDP, life expectancy, literacy, energy production) as well as some that are not always easy to find (imports or exports by country, military personnel). Users can zoom in or out, spin the globe and determine how data should be displayed (to an extent). Even though the company suggests that Global-i acts “more like a game than a financial analysis application” navigating about the globe and the graphics used to display the information are limited. Creating an account with Global-i costs at least ₤35 for a one year subscription; this allows access to more complete datasets.
