Fantastic Maps

If the Chinese proverb (一畫勝千言) " a picture is worth a thousand words" is true, than maps can be downright effusive. The Worldmapper website evidences this with its display of fantastically colorful, informative maps.

For instance, what does global population mapped look like?

World Population (2000)

Here are some others:

GDP (Gross Domestic Product) Wealth (2002)

Human Poverty Index Rating (2002)

Ecological Footprint (2006)

Worldmapper features dozens and dozens of other map categories. Check them out.
