It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of maps (and charts and graphs). So when I found Worldmapper, I pretty much thought it was the cat’s meow. As stated on their website, “Worldmapper is a collection of world maps, using equal area cartograms where territories are re-sized on each map according to a particular variable.” Just about any variable you could think to ask: import exports, gender, literacy, disaster, communication, religion — you name it, they have a map for it. I have no idea why I enjoy statistical information gathered and then presented in a colorful manner, but I do. And they have several animated maps as well – even better.
And speaking of maps. I would love to hang this one all a wall somewhere. The colors are quite pleasing and the size/scale just perfect. See more here.
It would be easy to put this map many places: dining room, child’s room, my pretend studio.
