Twenty-two maps that will change how you see the world

On my twitter feed this morning, @geoparadigm tweeted this great link on tree hugger about Twenty-Two Maps That Will Change How You See The World.  The maps are pretty impressive, although I’m not sure it will change how many of us in the geospatial community sees the world.  Being tree hugger and all, most of them are environmental in nature.  However the thing that most interested me was that the vast majority of the entries are actually interactive maps, not static maps.  If you ask me, the fact that these world view changing maps are primarily interactive shows a whole new world in and of itself.  Perhaps the greatest change is the need to move from the static to the dynamic in our maps themselves.
