Cartograms – The Real World View

The Daily Mail has published a series of world maps showing the relative size of various countries proportionate to several categories.  Everything from alcohol consumption to AIDS impact is represented.  For example, the map to the left is of military spending.  It all makes sense, but as a visual reminder it really drives home the true shape of the world these days.  Fascinating.
