14. Cartograms

A cartogram portrays statistical data in terms of land area. For example, the map above shows which countries contribute to Walmart's products and revenue and to what extent. The larger the country, the bigger part they play. Countries that do not contribute at all are not shown. This causes the map to become extremely distorted, but makes for a dramatic display for the information.
