On up to $10 a day

I was alerted to this website from a colleague and thought it was definitely cool enough to share on Flotsam/Jetsam. Well I’m not sharing for the first time ever, but everything old is new again on the web, so if you haven’t seen it before, check ‘er out – Worldmapper. A work in progress and put together by a whole bunch of academics from England and the US, Worldmapper uses cartograms to show data variables around the world. There’s a whole lot of geo-techno-babble that I don’t understand (I’m a historian, dammit, not a geographer), but once you start investigating the site a bit, you’ll get it. For example, the one above is people living on up to $10 a day.  If you’re loving it, they have an RSS feed so you can be kept abreast of new maps.  I’m totally signing up for it.
