Maps

If you love geography and maps, but find traditional atlases constraining, these maps might be just the solution. I'm particularly smitten with this blog, because it is one of the few that I've come across that mentions my home province, Newfoundland and Labrador (though Labrador's missing from said entry), and its thought-provoking while fun.

This map argues that there are nine nations in North America, not three countries. You can read their descriptions here. (As a Canadian, I am entirely annoyed that all suggested capitals for these "nations" are in the US.)

This map is a cartogram of the world's population distribution by country.

This map renames each US state to a country that has a similar GDP. For example, Texas is now Canada.
