Maps, data, oh what more do you need?

If you have read this blog with any sort of regularity I am sure you have noticed that I am a big fan of new and interesting ways of accessing data. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has provided me with a new resource to play with and share with all of you. The IMF Data Miner has maps and data from the world and on country level.

So why should ya care? Well, you can map and chart a variety of economic statistics from GDP to information on government statistics such as taxes collected. While the information comes in maps and charts, when you export you have the option to take it as an excel table. Have fun and feel free to share comments on the site.
