The Knoema World Data Atlas is a knowledge platform (pronounced ‘No Ma’) that offers a plethora of social, economic, geographic and political data on every country of the world and connects that data to analytical and presentation tools. It represents a uniformed platform where users can access, present and share data-driven content. You can access data from multiple sources, assemble relevant indicators in one space, visualize figures, apply analytical functions, create a set of dashboards and present your results.
Knoema includes more than 500 interactive data sets!
The most obvious connection to social studies is with grades 5-8 where students identify, describe, classify and compare regions of the world.
Watch a brief online video about Knoema.
