Locus Insight and the International Organisation for Migration have developed an interactive map tracking migrants around the world.

Users can click on a country and watch the pattern of inward or outward migration. Countries that neither send nor receive migrants will fade out. Hover over a country or over a migrant cluster to access the data. Each circle represents up to 20,000 migrants.

The image below is a screengrab from the graphic, to see the full interactive map click on the image.

Data for the map was taken from the World Bank’s Migration and Remittances Factbook 2011. The map will be updated with more recent statistics in the coming months.

Locus Insight developed another interactive graphic on where Irish emigrants have gone since 2006 which featured on Generation Emigration in March.
