Learn about the world by changing the familiar map. Choose a subject from the top menu and watch the countries on the map resize. Their total area no longer represents land mass but items relevant to the subject (i.e., persons, tonnes, barrels). The size of a country will tell you both its share of the total, and its absolute value. http://show.mappingworlds.nl/
