Description

Gapminder describes itself as a "fact tank" that promotes a fact based world view. On their website they provide a service that allows to create animated charts for various indicators, differentiated by country. They also provide the underlying datasets for download. This S3 class serves as a wrapper for easy access to a subset of these data.

Details

Please note that neither Gapminder nor the package developer/maintainer are the data provider, except for a few cases. Therefore you will have to go to the source to find out the terms of use for the specific indicator.

This class defines some resources of the Gapminder Project. See queries(gapminder()) for a list of resources.

This is a proof of concept for the urldata function.
