The World Mapped Like Never Before

A new book by Alastair Bonnett is being released today. It is described as

A unique and beautiful collection of fifty maps in which our physical, political and cultural world is visualised, measured and mapped like never before.

From charting energy networks to revealing new and emerging lands, measuring human migration to assessing the planet’s ant populations – and including the phenomena we have little control over such as lightning strikes or asteroid impact – each map asks you to question, wonder and look again at our rapidly changing and often surprising world.

I really like maps because they give you an instant overview of things. Here are some of them:

Obesity

Venomous Animals

Number of Migrants

Guns

Unknown Oceans
