World Mapper

World Mapper is a unique mapping tool that rescales the world map based upon a wide variety of criteria (i.e population, education, wealth, health, internet use). Unlike traditional maps that are scaled based on land area, World Mapper re-sizes each country based on the criteria chosen by the user. The result is maps that dramatically highlights demographic, social, and cultural differences among countries and regions.

  1. I really like these types of mapping tools, where you can just plug in information or hover over the geography in which you are interested to get the information. I have no GIS skills, so I appreciate having access to maps that are pre-generated. The stakeholder groups with which I work typically like seeing data in map format.

  2. Make sure to set aside 3-4 hours (or more) if you’re going to visit this site. Once you’re in, you’ll embark on an incredible journey. I love it!
