Images from this site are fantastic resource use to teach the thematic content, but also it is a great resource to show the relevance of geospatial technologies.

"The World Bank eAtlas of Global Development maps and graphs more than 175 thematically organized indicators for over 200 countries, letting you visualize and compare progress on the most important development challenges facing our world.
