About the project

The IMF DataMapper offers easy access to statistics from the World Economic Outlook and other databases of the International Monetary Fund.

We designed a tool that helps the IMF reach expert and non-expert audiences alike. Users visualize trends over time, compare countries, download data and images of map and chart. The IMF DataMapper has an indicator view (timeseries for all countries) as well as a country/region/analytical group view (bringing together all indicators for the specific area). The IMF DataMapper is pulling its data from the IMF data warehouse (SDMX).

The initial IMF DataMapper has been launched in 2007. Since then, we have been creating new features and adapting to latest technologies. In 2022 we have enhanced the search function. Search terms now return a digest of relevant information: key data, charts and links.
