Switzerland’s dual-use exports

May 2015

Direct link.

Dual-use goods are goods that can be used for civil and military purposes. In Switzerland, these goods are governed with a special legislation – unlike in other countries, where they are looked at as conventional arms exports. At SRF Data, we took the effort to parse and visualize the recently released data from the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs SECO.

The interactive visualization allows the reader to dig into the highly detailed dual-use exports data.

Because our data processing workflow is fully reproducible, we can re-publish the vis again and again as soon as new data are available. We already did in February 2016. The data and methodology are freely available on GitHub, as with other stories published by SRF Data.

One of the cool things about this project  is that it can be updated every year once the SECO releases new data. So that’s what we did in 2016 and 2017.

Technologies used: D3.js, DC.js.
