This is TradeMapper

By Mark Skipper on 22 September 2014

TradeMapper is a browser-based tool we developed for WWF and TRAFFIC to work with data about international trade in wildlife (though you could use it with any kind of data about international flows). It draws flows of traded items as lines on a world map; wider lines show bigger quantities; and coloured dots show the role of countries along the route. You can zoom (scroll wheel) and pan (drag) the map, and filter the data by column values to get insights about what your data means.

Try it out right away with test data or download a csv from the trade database maintained by CITES.

TradeMapper is work in progress so there are some rough edges. Fork us on Github and help make it better.
