Cartogram: a map where land area is substituted for another variable e.g. Gross National Product (GNP), Population, etc.
The map above highlights the vast difference in GNP between countries and the map below shows where densely populated parts of the UK are.
There is something that I really like about these cartograms and as soon as I came across them, they immediately caught my attention.
