Comparing Human Development of Countries through Star Plot Shapes

Worldshapin lets users study the interdependence of various factors such as health, carbon footprint, workplace equality, living standard, population and education across the world. Therefore, the project visualizes data taken from the Human Development Report 2011, and plots it on a stylized smoothed star plot. In effect, the world, continents and countries are represented as unique shapes based on how low or high they fare on 6 indicators.
