Visual Analytics for Model-Based Policy Analysis: Exploring Rapid Changes in Commodities Markets.

We will demonstrate an interactive visualization prototype with capabilities for ad hoc exploration that we have not found in other tools for policy analysis outside of the intelligence community. This visual workspace is built on a dynamic butterfly economic model. It enables analysts to examine for policy purposes global trends in consumption, production, imports and exports at national and regional scales and to relate them to population, GDP and income elasticity.
