Blog Topic #5

A cartogram is a type of map where another variable, such as population, is substituted in place of area when drawing a country. One of the best websites to examine a variety of cartograms is World Mapper - http://www.worldmapper.org/.  For example, the map below shows Malaria Death in 2003 and makes one realize how devastating this parasite is to Sub-Saharan Africa and parts of East Asia.

Go to World Mapper and select the A-Z Map Index to view all the maps available. Paste one of these maps into your blog and write about how it relates to globalization.
