See the World Through Different Lenses

I think I've blogged before about loving maps. Well, check this out. But I warn you, you'll spend all afternoon here!

Worldmapper created a series of maps, with the different countries re-sized according to different areas of interest. For example, the map below resizes the countries based on the amount each country spends on secondary education. (What's up with Canada?)

The site currently includes around 600 maps, on categories ranging from housing to religion to food to violence. What a fantastic way to make the statistics visual for students.
