Worldmapper

Posted by Megan on October 20, 2009

This tool is an oldie but goodie: Worldmapper (“The world as you’ve never seen it before”).

Worldmapper displays representations of countries with their size based on a particular statistic rather than on land area. For example, on the population map, Canada slims down to a small geographic sliver, while China and India expand to cover half the globe. The range of categories included is impressive: from cause of death to endangered animal species to income to war deaths.

Fun to play with, but also very eye-opening.
