An infographic translating enthnography into geography. Oh yeah.

Image

Strange map, huh? It’s the world scaled to each country’s GDP.

I like the concept, if not this particular illustration.

A similar map of Columbia’s wards could help show an important characteristic, such as voting turnout, math/reading scores or residents’ salaries.

It’s a cool way of comparing different parts of the City, don’t you think?

  1. I think this is really an interesting graphics, but for geography idiots like me, It is really hard to recognize some of the nations in the map. But with no doubt, this graphics did a successful job in attracting the attention and displaying the huge differences in GDP in different continent and countries. I would love to do something similar for voting or salaries of Missouri or Como as you mentioned in your post!

    • I’m thinking of trying out this graphic too. If you decide to make something with this idea, maybe we could trade notes, e.g. how to map Columbia and place data?
