Looking for visualizations that highlight major global trade networks? 

Want to know which country exports the most puzzles? 

The Observatory of Economic Complexity is a research and data viz tool used to explore global trade dynamics. It provides a snapshot of countries imports, exports, trade partners, products, and so on. Basically, it's a research tool that allows users to quickly compose a visual narrative about countries and the products they exchange. It provides access to bilateral trade data for roughly 200 countries, 50 years and 1000 different products.

Explore the visualizations page in the OEC via UN Comtrade, or even build your own tree map!

The Observatory of Economic Complexity is supported by The MIT Media Lab consortia.
