Project Description
The World Index project is a Silverlight project that is built to expose UN Millenium development goals using their public available data as datasource. The World Index project is based on the modules so it can be extended with other country based data.

The project contains little code at the moment. This is a project that is just started. At the moment we are converting MDG dataset to a database in the source code.
