As you can see, it's a pretty comprehensive resource. Plus, it's available as a Chrome application (if you're a Google Chrome user) or as a stand alone website. When you first arrive at the World Data Atlas, you'll be presented with the main screen where you can search by country or indicator.
After selecting a country, you'll see a screen with some basic statistics on size, population, leader, and so on. From here, you can compare the country to any other country (which is a wonderfully useful feature) or dig deeper with more specific indicators. And, as the video mentioned, each country has over 1,000 specific indicators you can look through.
If you click on a specific indicator you'll be presented with new options like exporting the data (as a CSV, Excel, PowerPoint, or PDF file), exploring the data in graph form, comparing the data, seeing the global rankings of that particular indicator, or viewing a map which let's you compare every country in the world.
The map feature is particularly handy because you can view how countries have changed over time, all the way back to 1980. It even includes predictions for future developments.
And basically, that's it! The amount of information and knowledge available through this service is incredibly deep, but the interface is simple enough that even elementary students would be able to use it without much difficulty. Plus, the options for comparing and exporting data are excellent resources that would be helpful in even the most advanced social studies or history class.
In short, the World Data Atlas is an excellent application and perfect for anyone looking for statistical information on countries.
