Anna Rosling Rönnlund

Anna Rosling Rönnlund is a co-founder and board member of the Gapminder Foundation. She holds a Degree in Sociology and Photography. Anna designed the user-interface of the famous animating bubble-chart tool called Trendalyzer, used by millions of students across the world, to understand multidimensional time series. The tool was acquired by Google where Anna worked as Senior Usability Designer designing interactive search results for statistical queries as well as the Motion Chart in Google Spreadsheets. Anna went back to Gapminder in 2011 to develop new free teaching material.

Using photos as data to understand how people live

By using photos as big data, Gapminder Foundation and Anna Rosling are making everyone’s living condition understandable to all. Imagine the World as a street where the poorest live to the left and the richest to the right. Everybody else live somewhere in between. Where would you live? Dollar Street is a free website with homes on different income levels from all over the World (see gapminder.org/dollar-street). Anna will present Dollar Street, the biggest systematic image bank with representative home documentations based on data. At the moment we have almost 30 000 photos and 10 000 video clips. All material is free under Creative Common license.
