Scoring Africa

Check out this really nice interactive map made by our friends in Great Business Schools. It is a nice interactive tool which offers a few different ways of viewing the multiple indicators that are used to assess the continent's development.

I like it because it's short on the exact figures (many target audiences don't really need to know this and for those who do, it's available from other sources), its visually appealing (nice pleasant colors), the viewer can quickly identify the pattern (click on HIV/aids or literacy), it's quick and smooth interactivity motivates continued use.
