Carbon dioxide emissions and wealth
Map illustration for the UN report Catalysing change - the UNECE response to the climate countdown.
This complex chart presents several issues in relation to climate change and emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2). The amount of information contained in a diagram of this type is very high, and it represents dense information, suitable for a skilled and scientific-minded audience that has time to study and interpret the chart. The illustration was prepared integrating multiple data sources relating them to each other and recalculating the figures.
Microsoft Access, Microsoft Excel, Golden Software Grapher and Adobe Illustrator were used to prepare the map.
The data source for the emissions data is the CDIAC carbon dioxide emissions database, while the financial figures were retrieved from World Development Indicators Online (WDI).
