200 Countries animation revisited

August 8, 2012

(This article was first published on Robert Grant's stats blog » R, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Here’s a new animated graph, again made using only stats software – R this time – to recreate Hans Rosling’s famous 200 Countries animation.

Have you ever noticed how Prof Rosling had a team of graphics people beavering away in that warehouse to make his video work? Well, I don’t have such a team at my disposal, and I guess neither do you. So this method aims to make animation accessible to the likes of us, so that we can make more exciting and engaging outputs to our work, spread our messages and probably save the world along the way.

You too can do an animated graph with only a little bit of programming in your stats software, for whatever type of graph you want. I will be sharing details of how to do it at www.animatedgraphs.co.uk very very soon. I promise!
