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


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



What an incredible tool for looking at the world. These maps re-size countries based on the topic of interest. Just clicking through the religious maps was an eye-opening experience. Take a look at these two maps.
Which one shows the population distribution of Christians, and which shows Muslims? Interesting stuff.
To see, so clearly, the distribution of populations based on religions illustrates the need to tone down divisive rhetoric, and learn how to co-exist with other belief systems. Looking at sheer population maps is a wake up call when we consider everything from economies, food production and globalization. What a great alternate lens through which to view the world.
