Abstract: Worldmapper is a collection of world maps in which territories are re- sized
according to different subjects, illustrating individual territories' share of
the world's population, wealth, emissions, etc. Of particular interest are the
disaster maps, which show the prevalence of disasters, the number of people
affected or killed by disasters, and more.
