HarvestChoice Tablr is an interactive data query tool similar to FAOSTAT and to the World Bank on-line table-generators. Tablr provides direct access to over 300 biophysical and socio-economic indicators for sub-Saharan Africa categorized by theme.

Indicators may be summarized across multiple geographies and/or development domains, or just downloaded in raw format (at a 5-arc minute resolution). The resulting tables may be exported to CSV or visualized in Mappr. They may also be embedded into your own website or web application using the HTML snippets provided.

This tool is under active development and user feedback is welcome.
