Worldmapper is a remarkable collection of world maps, where territories are re-sized on each map according to the subject of interest.

Want to compare countries based on carbon footprint? Toy exports or imports? HIV/AIDS? Infant mortality? Wellbeing?

There are several categories (and sub-categories) of maps, from economy, education, and environment, to identity, resources, and society. The site can also be browsed by region to find maps related to a specific country.

There are about 600 maps, and this fascinating, sobering, and revealing visual representation is not only personally useful for anyone involved in research, investigation, and changemaking, but for all educators looking for new and interesting ways to share important information with students.
