Mobile Data, FTW! The GSMA Development Fund Steps It Up with The Mobile Development Intelligence Database | MobileActive.org.

The GSMA Development Fund is trying to address this [mobile data] gap with the launch of a new data site, the Mobile and Development Intelligence (MDI) project. The MDI contains about 70 metrics and the ability to tabulate, graph, map and export the datasets with country-level dashboards for 140 developing world countries. The database aims to aggregate publicly available data from sources such as the ITU, the World Bank, and that of development organizations that can supply data about their projects and organizations themselves, as well as some data from the proprietary GSMA Wireless Intelligence service.
