Illegal wildlife trade is a major threat to many endangered species.
Wildlife conservationists and scientists use large volumes of data to monitor this continuously evolving trade.
TradeMapper lets them condense this data, and present it clearly and interactively to track and measure the spatial movement of illegal wildlife products and determine what factors influences the trade.
It is an open-source interactive browser-based tool that represents current and historical geographical trade trends (in illegal wildlife, or anything for which you have data) visually, as opposed to dry numerical data.
