This project was created to address some of the user experience challenges of using trademap.org. For example, users have to click multiple times to create a simple geographic visualization of Bangladesh's trading partners. In this redesigned version of the map, user do not have click as much and can navigate between the maps using the three buttons on the top right. The main goal of this project was to present the users with the option to navigate between Bangladesh's trade data in a clean and a simple interface.
The total export for the year 2014 was $33.8 Billion. The graph below list the top 10 export destinations. The top exports of Bangladesh are Non-Knit Men's Suits ($5.26B), Knit T-shirts ($5.25B), Knit Sweaters ($4.17B), Non-Knit Women's Suits ($3.32B) and Non-Knit Men's Shirts ($2.37B). Most of the top destination are located in the western markets with one exception being Turkey.
The data for this project was gathered from trademap.org, a site run the International Trade Centre. All the data is for the year 2014, as the data for 2015 is not available for all the trading partners of Bangladesh. Additional data and information was gathered from MIT’s Observatory of Economic Complexity.
