Summary
Using an innovative design, maps are populated by infographics, graphs, and icons to represent information and statistics about a subject in a very visual way. This aids readers in comparing and contrasting the same subjects in different parts of the world. Each spread explores one subject in-depth, such as how goods are transported around the globe, who has the tallest buildings, where space missions have been launched from, and how the production and trade of palm oil affects people and the environment
