Worldmapper is a collection of world maps, where territories are re-sized on each map according to the subject of interest . . The maps presented on this website are cartograms, otherwise known as density-equalising maps. The maps of the world you are used to seeing attempt to represent countries according to their land area. A cartogram re-sizes each country (or other geographical unit) according to some other variable - for example population, GDP, number of people with AIDS, etc.

Thats kind of cool. I work for a Mapping company So I have access to some programs to run analysis and I know more then people should about calculating great circles from lat/longs. Although I dont know how or if we can do anything as crazy as what that site has. Its kind of cool to look at how blown up china is for the toys and such and then how we purchase ALL of them

Pretty cool maps. I didn't get too deep into the site, but I noticed the whole page for that link is regarding imports/exports. To get a TRUE picture of the country they should also include domestic production/consumption. I like the tourism one.
