SELECT a subject from the top menu and watch the countries on the map change their size. Instead of land mass, the size of each country will represent the data for that subject --both its share of the total and absolute value.

Interesting - but it would be interesting if certain stats could be compared relatively to country size. For instance, a small country like Denmark can't compete much in raw numbers, but if the figures were "litres of pure alcohol consumed by person per year", "windmill power production relative to energy consumption", "number of abortions/year compared to population" etc., we'd probably score a lot better :)

If you have that data in the format they want, submit it and they may add it to the Your Maps section.

Well, I'd say the already have all the data they need to make those "proper" maps... they probably just din't think much, or perhaps they see everything in absolutes :)

Ireland managed to come first in peat production :)

they do seem to only focus on percentages (of world production)
they do have alcohol consumption but again % of world consumption
Denmark & Ireland more or less the same, populations similar - guess you all drink a lot then there f0dder ?! ;D
