World Bank Projects and Globe Interface Upgrades

Issue: September, 2015

Since our last newsletter, GLOBE has been fined tuned with improvements ranging from a redesigned interface to an updated similarity analysis. Now, the GLOBE team would like to share two new exciting updates. We have added thousands of World Bank Projects to our case library and have further improved our redesigned interface. Read about them in this month’s newsletter!

GLOBE has partnered with AidData and has added over 14,000 various World Bank projects to its case library. Users can view these World Bank cases individually, as collections organized by sector, or as an entire collection. We hope that the GLOBE community will take full advantage of this new dataset!


Major Updates to the GLOBE Interface

GLOBE now includes cases derived from reports and research sites – so the GLOBE team has added a color coded filtering system. This filtering system makes it easy to separately view academic sources, reports & documents, and research site datasets. Now users can quickly toggle between source types to find the cases that are most relevant to their own interests.

We have also updated GLOBE’s case browser with a faster and more interactive interface. Additionally, GLOBE now has a handy “Excel Download” button in both the representativeness analysis and collection view screens. This download button has the same functionality as the data sheet exporter, but without the data sheets. For more details on the addition of AidData’s World Bank projects and the case search update within GLOBE, read our blog posts here and here and check out our new World Bank documentation page.
