I just got a new data set on international aid flows. This is my first look at it, showing the sum of 110,742 donations since 1960. Donors are white, recipients are red. Pretty complex, I think.
This is a very effective representation of aid flows. Is there any way to separate the donors from the recipients? It might make for a more interesting and informative pattern. Also, how might one represent aid flows for countries that are both historical recipients of aid as well as donors (like Korea, Brazil, India and China for instance)?
