This tool permits the distribution of a resource's production using a worldwide heat map. It also displays important information, such as the highest production of resources in a particular year.
The Herfindahl-Hirschman index (HHI) measures the production concentration of a resource. The values are normalized to 0 to 1, where 1 indicates the production of that particular resource is concentrated in only one country. In terms of supply risk, it is better if the production of a resource is distributed over many countries reducing its dependency.
The HHI is an essential component of the GeoPolRisk method and provides an overview of the global supply risk of a resource during a period.
The visualization is possible only for one country at a time.
Atleast three consecutive years must be selected to permit the visualization.
For a comparative visualization select only one year.
To compare the GeoPolRisk of multiple resources then only select one Country
else if comparing with multiple Countries then choose only a single resource.
