Worldmapper - ways of seeing the world (visualizing info)

I'm cleaning out my home drive at school. I need to make room. Found this little activity that has students not only assess the media web site but think about the way they can map and view world statistics.

It's a great introductory activity that allows students to assess and clarify what design and elements they like in a site, and also a jumping point to discuss point of view and representation of data.

They enjoy it and it's a good way for me to share so: World Mapper web site. (Check out the maps A-Z).

Here the one-pager introductory activity. Media: How do I make sense of information I read?

Example map: Population of the world by 2050. (source: Worldmapper)
