Systema Globalis (SG)
The name is inspired by Systema Naturae; the first systematic compilation of all living things from year 1735, by the Swedish Scientist Carl von Linné. The goal of Systema Globalis is to compile all public statistics; Social, Economic and Environmental; into a comparable total dataset.
This is the main dataset used in tools on the official Gapminder website. It contains local & global statistics combined from hundreds of sources.
How to update
Currently the dataset is maintained by manually copying data from multiple other datasets. The plan is to automate the process by using a file called ddf--imports.csv Described here
##Dependencies If you added more dataset dependencies, add them manually to the excel file in data_process, and save as csv to the dataset folder. All GS-dependencies must be of type ddf and public as an Open Numbers github repo. Files:
- ddf--dependencies is manually edited
