Widgets, maps and an API make World Bank data sing

The new data.worldbank.org looks to improve data-driven decisions.

The new data.worldbank.org website that’s launching today is designed to make the vast wealth of open data easier to use. The Bank is increasing the number of indicators available on the site from 339 to more than 1,200, and it has substantially improved its API. Four different languages are supported on the site, along with an improved data browser, feedback buttons, instant search, and embeddable widgets.
