GA Conference 2018 - Post #14 - New Worldmapper

On the Friday of the conference, I was privileged to be present as the new Worldmapper site went live, with 125 new maps. This is the first tranche of what will be many other maps, and Ben very nicely went through the development of the site, and how he had upgraded the colour palette to make the maps more easy to analyse. There were some new features, and the layout of the site means that it is now easier to find maps, and also download the data to use yourself.

Thanks to Ben for the limited edition stickers and postcards (all reasonable bids welcome on eBay ;) ) and also to him and Tina for coming along to my lecture.

Ben later led a workshop on how to create similar cartograms to the maps on this site, and these materials will be on the GA Conference downloads page, which is starting to grow as more sessions are added.

If you've not been to Worldmapper since the relaunch, you owe it to yourself to head there, and perhaps update maps you've used previously in your schemes of work and resources, and take a look at the shiny new maps while you're there...

Can you guess what this map might be showing?
It's one on the main home page currently...
