New UNESCO eAtlas series makes it easy to visualize data on key issues.

To what extent is China investing in experimental research? Which African countries have the most out-of-school children? How have graduation rates for girls in Latin America changed over time?

The new UNESCO eAtlas series provides users with a powerful new tool to visualize data on critical policymaking issues in the field of education as well as science and technology. The three subjects covered are research and experimental development, out-of-school children and gender equality in education -  an online companion to the print edition of the World Atlas of Gender Equality in Education.

The free online, interactive tool maps dozens of data and indicators from the global database of the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS), giving fast and easy access to precise data and indicators to answer users’ questions, and provide information needed to shape development policies.

Users can export customized, professional quality, full-colour maps and graphs. Other features include scalable maps, timeline graphing, ranking tables, and import and export functions for sharing data and graphics. Links to additional information and data sources are also provided.

Updated annually with the latest available data from UIS, the eAtlas series is a powerful resource for professionals, academics, teachers, students and journalists. Other editions are planned on a range of issues, such as higher education and the global demand for teachers.
