Best Highlights of 2013

Thank you for being with us this entire year! 2013 was great and busy so we've collected the whole bunch of fascinating visualizations and important changes. And we invite you to recollect the best of them with us. 

This year we were trying hard to make the service useful for absolutely everyone. We do believe that data should be easily accessible and understandable both for data enthusiasts and data experts. So all the tools and all the changes that we applied this year went that way with us.

So let's review the best highlights of 2013!

Major Releases of 2013

As soon as Knoema is not just about data, but about visual storytelling, we were constantly working on improving data viz gadget adding new features, enhancements and cool options so you could build the most beautiful visualizations easily. Moreover in the very end of the year we've come up with the new Dataset Viewer to let data lovers and experts explore and visualize data on the fly. 

This year we have added topics to World Data Atlas (the biggest release of 2012) and made it multilingual so today a lot of users from all around the world can explore Atlas in their native languages. 

In 2013 we have worked on other useful data-driven applications as well. We have improved the existing apps and released a number of new ones like Fortune 500 or World Data Finder. Letting users get data and charts relevant to web pages they visit online, it actually revealed a new type of web browsing and turned out to be a new generation tool for data discovery and data analysis. And it received great attention from online press, e.g., you can check Journalism.uk, VentureBeat or TechNorms articles.

And for those who always wanted to make money from working with data-driven content we have launched a highly tailored marketplace. So far Knoema Market turned to be the perfect platform where every user can earn money by participating in data-driven projects and find people who can work on such projects for the reward.
