“The world as you’ve never seen it before” is the subtitle of this fascinating, enlightening and though-provoking collection of maps of our planet. The maps use equal area cartograms where territories are re-sized on each map according to a particular variable. The site covers 200 territories, mainly United Nation Member States plus a few others to include at least 99.95% of the world’s population. Many map categories, such as “pollution” and “resources” focus on how the planet is exploited with respect to north and south, richer and poorer.
