Change the World, One Map at a Time

by | Oct 11, 2008 | Cultural Creativity

I just found the SHOW /WORLD website using StumbleUpon and had to share it.

With their interactive world map you choose the global issue, e.g., Car Ownership, and they resize the world map so that the contribution each country makes to the issue is reflected in their size. Not sure what I mean?

Here’s a representation of the death penalty by contributor.

China leads with 470

China leads with 470 dealth penalty killings

Or the remaining forest area.

Russia leads with 808.7 million hectares left

Unicef, Amnesty and UNESCO among many other contributed data for the site. Issues covered are quite varied, ranging from Migration to Wind Energy to Tourist Arrivals. It really is quite a fascinating site to poke around on.

And if you have a good idea for a map, SHOW /WORLD is up for suggestions.
