World Maps - 696 World Maps
What does our
world look like if we don’t measure it in physical terms of miles and
meters? What if we measure our
territories by coffee consumption and rainfall volume? You can see what that looks like by clicking on worldmapper.com, the World Mapper
website. The site has almost 700 maps covering 31 categories Each one is different.
These maps give
us a way to understand statistics –for example how adult literacy compares in almost
200 territories - by looking at a brightly colored map. Want to see changes in population? Look at maps from 1500, 1960 and estimates
for 2050. The pinks and reds, the colors of the continent of Africa
that were small in 1500 are at the center of the map of 2050.
Think of any
sets of numbers you want to compare and imagine how today's traditional map would change. Which countries would be large and which
would be small, how would our world look?
