Build Your Own Infographic World Map


Why is another world popoulation map website Cool?  Because on GunnMap, by Gunn Interactive, you can load your own data.   There are a few example data sets preloaded like population, GDP growth, military spending and birth rate, but the best part is that you can paste in your own data to create a custom world map.

Here's a quick demo video from Arthur Gunn on how to use the site by pasting in data from the CIA website to create a new map:

I love things like this. There's also another one which you can customize - http://www.sacmeq.org/statplanet/ - although this one looks a good deal sharper...

Does anyone know where I can find one of the America's 50 states that I can load in my own data?

Hi Randy,
You can do that with manyeyes.

Too bad it creates bad maps. The eye naturally integrates areas, so you cannot decorate a choropleth with per capita colors. The symbology must be per capita per area, otherwise the result is (subconsciously) misleading.
