Visual World Factbook for iPad

The Visual World Factbook app has information on the people, society, government, economy, geography, communications, transportation, military, and transnational issues for 267 world entities.

The Visual World Factbook is based on public domain material published by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Striving to present the data in a more compelling, interactive way, Visual World Factbook provides maps, graphs and statistics that can help users increase their global understanding. The Visual World Factbook contains four different sections for users to explore: Browse, Search, Graphs, and Maps.

In the Browse section, the app displays a 2D map of the world with the names of each continent and ocean listed below. Users may tap on specific names or the map itself to view a fact page with more data and details on their selection. Each selection contains additional information including an introduction, its location, dozens of comparison graphs, and flag, as applicable.

In the Graphs & Statistics section, the app presents over 75 different statistics that can be viewed visually on a global map or in a graph format. Some examples of statistics provided for data comparison include Fertility Rates, Unemployment Rates, Public Debt, and Military Expenditures.
