Population cartogram (19.5" x 36") - Laminated- - rolled and tubed
Every map gives up some aspect of reality to present another. On this map each country is shown proportional to its population. The map gives up territory to present people. You may not be able to make out the little squares, but they are easy enough to see on the original poster. Each square represents a million people. Looking at the world this way is a revelation. From the perspective of population, China is the biggest country in the world! India is not far behind. For a real shock, compare Indonesia with the United States. Compare Mexico with Canada. Africa is not as big as the news sometimes makes it. Asia has half the people in the world! - - - - - - - - - - - NOTE #1: These maps have a very durable lamination and thick paper. As a result, these maps will have minor "marks" resulting from our rolling them into tubes for shipment. To remove marks, carefully apply a warm iron over a moist cloth. This will smooth them out.
