Project Title: World Factbook Visualization


The World Factbook is an annual publication of the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States with information about the countries of the world. The Factbook provides summaries of the demographics, geography, communications, government, economy, and military of U.S.-recognized countries, dependencies, and other areas in the world. CIA Factbook site features static data that cannot be dynamically searched, queried or compared.

The goal of this project was to import the data published on Factbook site into relational database and provide an interactive and exciting interface for building queries and displaying the results in tables or directly  on a world map. In order to create a world database we built a tool for extracting the data from the Central Intelligence Agency site (which is perfectly legal)
