Outsourced Graph #1: OECD Factbook eXplorer

2 July, 2009

This is a pretty sweet site. It has data for all kinds of statistics for pretty much every country, for pretty much every year. If you want to graph the US expenditure on R&D versus the total GDP, you can! Or, the employment rate versus fertility rate of all of the countries in Europe, you can! I’ve only just discovered this site (Thanks, Mom!) so I’m still playing with it, but it’s pretty cool, so I would check it out if I were you. Let me know if you get any fascinating correlations!

In addition, this is not a graph or list, but it’s so cool that I couldn’t resist: ToneMatrix. Click on a box, and it’ll make a note. Click on another, and it’ll make another. Left to right is when in the sequence the note is played, top to bottom is how high or low the pitch is (top=high). I’m pretty sure they made it so you can’t make something that sounds bad, but just like the above, I’m still playing, so I have yet to find out.



  1. Glad you liked this site.
