Population of Southeast Asia Compared to the Rest of the World
Maps can be great guides for more than just finding routes for traveling. They often provide insight on the rest of the world. Taking a look at certain maps can be incredibly informative, especially when comparing the standing of countries in relation to one another. In fact, many passionate cartographers take pride in creating maps that present relevant knowledge through a visual medium.
Whether they’re on topics concerning population density, educational level, or even a gauge of internet usage across the world, each serves a purpose of sharing data to enlighten minds. Most people aren’t constantly traveling and immersing themselves into the practices of multiple nations, so a statistically informed map can help us all learn more about how we compare to the people of a country on the opposite end of Earth.
An ever-growing collection of informative maps are available through ChartsBin, Target Map, and the MapPorn subreddit. There’s also a wonderfully curated list over on Twisted Sifter. Here’s our roundup of the top 25 informative maps that you’ll never forget.
Each year our maps of the world powered by Clustr Maps archives the red dots that accumulate throughout the year. Apparently they do not want to map to turn into a big red BLOB…so, each year I post screen shots of the world map showing where readers of this blog are from.
(I will fix screen shots of the specific country lists when I get home from work tonight.)
Sometime over night we hit 250,000 on our BLOG. Such an awesome response to something that started out so spontaneous because of our partnership with Triumph last summer. Over the 9 months we have learned so much from all the comments, the maps we keep to see where you are all from and much about social media and blogging. Still have so much to learn but I tell you it’s been so much fun researching and posting what we hope are interesting and at times different topics.
We have to be honest some of the countries visiting this site we have never heard of but thanks to the next few pics I will be posting we are also getting a great lesson in geography. Is your country listed?
Once again Cheryl and I would really like to thank all of you in help making this little blog such a success and we will continue to try to keep it real and fresh! Hope everyone comes back, comments once in a while and as always feedback is welcomed! Take a look at the world below as we see it! Continue reading “250,000 HITS! Another Big Thank You!”
