SHOWWorld : A map with a difference

It is often difficult to assess Australia's relative place in the world when subjects such as child health, renewable energy, population aging and a myriad of other topics are discussed.

SHOWWorld is a fascinating global map adjustable by various indices (population, health, energy etc). Select a subject from the top menu and watch the countries on the map change their size. Instead of land mass, the size of each country will represent the data for that subject. Mapping Worlds, the company behind this application is a data visualisation and interface design company who work with organisations such as the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.
