WorldMapper – A different view of our world

Ciaran Moore - February 28, 2007

169.jpgThis is a cool website that shows many statistics about the world. But the interesting thing is the way it does it.

The goal of this project is to use the map projections known as cartograms to depict comparisons and relations between different areas of the world. Effectively showing a graphical representation of various worldwide statistics such as population, production, health, pollution, etc.

As of me writing this, the site has 294 maps in total on various statistics. Its an interesting way of viewing various aspects of our world as it resizes the world map view to reflect the various statistics, this is much easier to understand by looking at the website, so go check it out.
