World Map with a Difference

World Mapper provides a worldview changing perspective.While traditional maps have a fixed land area, countries on the maps provided here are re-sized according to a variable – Income, poverty, education, communication, food, and language, just to name a few.The most interesting visualisations have to do with population, which are best viewed at a country-level. The maps can be downloaded in high-resolution and freely reproduced; Excel files with values used to produce the map are also offered for download.
