Strange Maps

Once again my friend the great LT has brought my attention to an interesting website/ blog. This one is: http://strangemaps.wordpress.com/

This is a map of the United States called "The US States Renamed for Countries With Similar GDPs (Gross Domestic Product). The map is based on data from the year 2000. It is a striking graphic of just how rich the US is compared to other nations. Click on the map to view more closely.

Graphics:Richard Palmer; Conception:Dr. Earl Fry

Interesting, especially the Russia/Jersey comparison. I noticed though that Japan, China, and Taiwan weren't on there.
