Estonia’s trade flows can now be visualized

Statistics Estonia launched an application that visualizes Estonia’s trade flows, giving a better overview of trade with other countries.

“A picture says more than a thousand words – that is the reason for why we started creating a tool for visualizing foreign trade statistics,” explained Karl Annus, project manager for digital services at Statistics Estonia. “The volume of foreign trade transactions in Estonia sometimes reaches billions of euros and most of us have a difficult time picturing this. The application visualizes the trade flows on the screen and helps us better perceive the share and value of the goods in the trade of Estonia, selected countries or within the particular group of goods,” Annus added. Exports and imports can also be displayed on maps.

The application includes information on the main partner countries of Estonia’s exports and imports and the main commodities imported and exported. It is possible to download both graphic representations as well as the relevant data. The data can be visualized by year, quarter and month and by countries of origin, consignment and destination.
