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 t
he 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.
