The Worldmapper website provides almost 700 density-equalising maps realting to different topics. These cartograms re-size the territories according to the variable being mapped. So if you want to compare areas by transport, tourism, production, disease or many other categories, these maps can show you relative densities and provide a poster summarising the data. The site offers a range of variables to compare the countries.
