Worldmapper: The world as you've never seen it before

What a great site! Have a look at these maps redrawn based on specified criteria, such as land mass, poverty, population, etc. Their website describes the site in the following way:

Worldmapper is a collection of world maps, where territories are re-sized on each map according to the subject of interest.

There are now nearly 700 maps. Maps 1-366 are also available as PDF posters. Use the menu above to find a map of interest. To learn a little more about this and other map projections read this: Worldmapper and map projections.

They recently added a new series of maps of the world's population using a new mapping technique: Worldmapper Population Atlas

Here is an interactive map of the world's population living on less than $1/day to those earning over $200/day.
