Data Visualization Net Migration

The data below represents the net migration of people in every country throughout the globe. The net migration is the number of people immigrating into the country minus the number of people emigrating. When the net migration is below zero it simply means that the country has more people emigrating than they do have people immigrating. Data is collected every 5 years. We have 3 visualisations to show trends in location, quantity and time.
