A different worldview

Via Marginal Revolution, I found Worldmapper, a fascinating site from Sheffield University. It provides world maps where territories are resized according to the subject of the map. Here, for example, is the map of world population in 2050 (You may have difficulty in finding Europe):

World population 2050

Worldmapper also provides Excel files with the data that generates the maps. A very creative resource to understand the world.
