How Old is Your Globe?

ReplogeGlobes has a list of no longer existant countries and the year they vanished.  You can use this to date the old globe you have in the attic.  I definitely remember the Central African Republic (1960) from some maps in school.

National Geographic has an article with a graphic that shows both population density and income level across the world.  It is interesting the way that some of the bright spots follow national borders.

Nerdy Day Trips is the sort of site you check before you go somewhere on vacation just in case there is something interesting nearby.  The map starts up centred on the UK but you can move around to where ever you want.
