The FIFA Development Globe showcases FIFA's educational activities work. Based on an elegant geometric abstraction of the world, the globe provides playful access to thousands of events worldwide as well as background information on the FIFA development programs.
The FIFA Development Globe visualizes FIFA's development work across the
world. The many programmes and projects undertaken by the FIFA
Development Division have been condensed into four main areas: the
Financial Assistance Programme, the PERFORMANCE programme, technical
support and infrastructure projects.
These are placed on a 3D globe as colorful triangle based constructions,
and can be filtered by their indvidual program types. The globe itself is
based on an elegant geometric construction, generated to reflect country
borders as abstracted geometry with an adaptive, recursive subdivision
In addition, financial assistance budget spending per country
and a timeline of events as well as some background information on the
FIFA development programs can be accessed within the application.
The goal is not only to understand and compare how differently the member countries spend the resources provides them with, but also which regions in the world require which types of educational and infrastructure activities.
Sophisticated filter elements based on the elastic lists principle
allow to filter the globe view to specific types of information and provide detailed information about the current focus point in form of contextual inline charts and figures.
In addition, a timeline view allows to understand the temporal distribution of FIFA's development activities over the last five years.
