|OECD eXplorer is a leading edge tool for exploring and analysing regional statistics using a very interactive interface for the presentation of the regional differences and structures of OECD member countries. It combines maps with other visual presentations, using powerful mechanisms for selecting the groups of regions of interest to the user.
The development of OECD eXplorer is the result of a fruitful cooperation between OECD and the National Centre for Visual Analytics (NCVA, http://ncva.itn.liu.se/) at Linköping University, Sweden. In the seminar on generating knowledge from statistics, organised by Statistics Sweden and OECD in Stockholm in May 2008, Professor Mikael Jern from NCVA presented a first version with selected OECD statistics. Since then, the development team at NCVA has worked intensively on improving the tool and adapting it to the needs of the OECD.
