Worldmapper: "The world as you've never seen it before"

Worldmapper is home to a set of visually arresting world maps based on statistics (about health, wealth, energy use, pollution, etc.): in each map, countries shrink or swell up based on their numbers relative to the rest of the world.

Wealth 1990

Wealth 2015

HIV Prevalence

Nice .pdf posters of the maps--including the image, explanatory text, data tables, and more--are available for free download and printing. That "HIV Prevalence" map is a stunner.

I spent over an hour looking at all of the maps. Thanks for posting them.
