Big Data Visualization of the Week: 40 Maps of the World

This week’s installment of big data visualizations is a bonus for those who enjoy stories offered up by data-driven maps. 40 Maps That Will Help You Make Sense of the World includes some rather surprising summaries. A few of my favorites are: Countries that Do Not Use the Metric System (see map below), Paid Maternal Leave, Global Internet Usage Based on Time of Day, Highest Paid Public Employees by State, and you gotta love the human tattoo visualization at the very end of the series.
