EmiGo

To some, emigrating is a necessity, to others it is an aspirational and adventurous experience. Historically, it has been a driver of human development and culture, despite the current negative portrayal in the media. EmiGo intends to reverse this perception by promoting mutually beneficial emigration.


There is a vast amount of data being collected about migration, however it is usually presented in a form suitable for governmental and policy-making use. This data is repackaged in a context which makes it useful in aiding someone's decision of where to emigrate to.  


It asks questions to ascertain where the user is eligible to emigrate to. It then presents a visualisation of potential countries using qualitative metrics, as well as providing a dynamic search feature allowing the user to search any interest they may have, no matter how obscure it may be. This allows the user to compare these unique and personalised searches across multiple countries, aiding their decision.
