A map with a difference

Click here to see SHOWWorld, a fascinating global map adjustable by various indices (population, health, energy etc). Select a subject from the top menu and watch the countries on the map change their size. Instead of land mass, the size of each country will represent the data for that subject. Mapping Worlds, the company behind this application is a data visualisation and interface design company with a love for maps. They are based in Amsterdam and work with organisations such as the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank to make data accessible to different audiences.
