Global Arms Transfers:Visualize Half a Century of Drone Trade
(1963 - 2014)
About the Project: The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) maintains a database on Global Arms Transfers. We downloaded their data and focused on the exchange of drones. We aggregated the amounts to calculate statistics. We've imported it in this Silk. So now you can query the information, explore patterns, and visualize data interactively. And, of course, share it all in a few clicks on social media, or embed the (responsive) graphs online. Sift through this resource for stories that highlight:
- Time Trends: How many (reported) drones have been traded globally since the 1960s? How much is the number increasing?
- Biggest Suppliers and Receivers: Which countries have received most drones? Which are the biggest global suppliers?
- Relationships: Which are the largest drone trade flows? To which nations did your country supply more drones?
- Drone Models: Which drone are most imported globally? And by each country?
- Individual Trade Deals: Details on 174 arms trade deals of drones.
