Anna Rosling Rommund - Co-Founder, Gapminder Foundation

Anna Rosling Ronnlund is a co-founder in 2005, along with Hans Rosling and Ola Rosling of the Gapminder Foundation. Gapminder is a non-profit venture Ð a modern ""museum"" on the Internet Ð promoting sustainable global development and achievement of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.

The initial activity was to pursue the development of the Trendalyzer software. Trendalyzer sought to unveil the beauty of statistical time series by converting boring numbers into enjoyable, animated and interactive graphics. The current version of Trendalyzer is available since March 2006 as Gapminder World, a web-service displaying time series of development statistics for all countries.

In March 2007, Google acquired Trendalyzer from the Gapminder Foundation and the team of developers who formerly worked for Gapminder joined Google in California in April 2007. (History of Gapminder)

To fulfill our aim, we at Gapminder are currently working on:

Keeping our tools' statistical content up-to-date and making time series freely available in Gapminder World and Gapminder Countries. Producing videos, Flash presentations and PDF charts showing major global development trends with animated statistics in colorful graphics. All with the intention of being a ""fact tank"" that promotes a fact based world view.
