This map is a visualization of global GDP trends over time. You can observe, primarily within OECD nations, the trend of GDP concentrations over the 15 years from 1995 - 2010. The value of this trend understanding comes from being able to see which nations have developed more rapidly comparatively, and if there are concentrations of development amongst any of these nations. The color progression visually highlights the progression, from the lightest (lowest GDP per capita), to darkest (highest GDP per capita).
