20 incredibly interesting maps they never showed us at school
Now you’ll get a better understanding of our world.
What’s the point of inventing brand new stuff if old things work just as well? Maps, for instance, are a bit like ancient infographics. You can simply select the criteria, choose the color and there you go! Your visual database of the world is ready. And plus, geography would have been a much more informative and fun subject to study if they taught us some of these interesting facts about the world.
We decided to fix that and collected some non-traditional maps that show our world from a totally different angle. No mineral deposits, no climatic zones — just the most interesting information about our world that you won’t find in school atlases.
