Web Site of the Week: Worldmapper

© Copyright 2006 SASI Group (University of Sheffield) and Mark Newman (University of Michigan).


Worldmapper is not a traditional map Web site.  Instead it is a fun way to understand statistics visually.  Worldmapper has a collection of maps that are re-sized according to different subjects/interests.  For example, the map above shows each country’s size in proportion to it’s population compared to the rest of the world.  You can view maps by many different subjects ranging from amount of commute time to number of deaths caused by war.
