Use curated data sets or provide custom data
Preassembled curated data sets enable immediate investigation into country-level similarities or differences. The ability to upload your own data sets as spreadsheet workbooks makes it easy to perform custom analyses.
Interactive visualization enables user-driven exploration
Users can explore the country clusters generated by the tool to gain an understanding of the metrics that are the key drivers of similarities and differences.
Focus on country-level longitudinal trajectories
A unique feature of this tool is the clustering based on longitudinal data, not single numeric metrics. Users can explore the metrics that drive the clusters and the individual trajectories for those metrics.
Distance mode enables more nuanced comparison
A deficiency of some clustering techniques is that they can result in rigid boundaries that can lead to misinterpretation. The tool enables users to explore the underlying distance metric driving the clusters, making the inter-and intracluster spread more visible.
