What Do Maps Tell Us ?

These extraordinary maps are created by a brilliant group of map geeks at the University of Sheffield with help from computer wiz Mark Newman from the University of Michigan. The collection of 700 world maps uses equal area cartograms, where territories are re-sized on each map according to a particular variable. You can find the amazing maps, and much more, at their website Worldmapper
