40 Maps – 40 Takes on this World


A certain character I know fairly well has a thing for maps. The way they let you see the world from above lets one put one’s self right in the middle of, well, another world.

This article in the Washington Post presents 40 maps that present a varying and extremely interesting variety of views of our planet and the humans who populate it.

Where do people feel the most loved? Which are the most intolerant of ethnic diversity? Which written language is predominant?

While somewhat subjective, these maps show a globe fraught with challenge, turmoil and opportunity. The thing is — which do you see? Challenge? Turmoil? Opportunity?

The experienced map reader knows this is a trick question. For within challenge and turmoil, opportunity awaits.
