This Working Paper presents a brief but comprehensive graphical overview of copper contained in international trade, from copper concentrates through to finished products. Extensive data checks and a simple consolidation method were performed before visualizing the data on world maps. While data were collected and analyzed for the period 1992–2014, the year 2014 is used here to follow the global journey of copper from mine to final users.
