CNN on The Atlas of the Real World

Atlas of the Real World The Worldmapper team’s Atlas of the Real World continues to get lots of media coverage; the latest is from CNN. The Atlas “has redrawn the map giving vivid new insights and bringing economic, social and environmental data to life,” Matthew Knight writes. “Not since the German meteorologist, Alfred Wegener, sketched out the first detailed theories of continental drift has the world appeared so misshapen, so otherworldly.” Somewhat hyperbolic for a collection of cartograms, but there it is; if nothing else, with coverage like this, this book will go a long way towards installing the idea of the cartogram in the public consciousness.
