The visualisation has 8 different views which you can switch between by using our toggle functions within three different tabs:
- Map View vs List View
- Country View vs Continent View
- Average per Inhabitant (kg) vs Total (kt)
The map view allows you to see the size of the counties or continents proportionate to the amount of e-waste generated as an average per individual or as a total of the population. Making comparisons becomes especially interesting when you switch between the inhabitant average and total e-waste generated. For instance, Hong Kong and Switzerland, while relatively small geographically, generate more e-waste per person than large countries like Russia – something easily overlooked on a heatmap.
