Top 10 new resources (at least new to me) from 2011...I'll release one or two a day for the rest of year.  Coming in at #10, is this fantastic link that is an excellent way to compare data from different countries.  This link compares MANY countries' demographics in a very personal manner.  Instead of just using impersonal (and to many student inaccessible) raw data, this site transforms the statistics into numbers that relates to their lives helps to foster geographic empathy in the classroom discussions about development.

Globalization discussions about raising disparity within countries often overshadow the growing inequalities between countries. What qualifies as middle class in the United States can be the equivalent of an upper-class lifestyle for many nations around the world. The same can be said in comparing what the poor in America have access to in comparison to many developing countries.

A great resource to compare the liveability of countries using a range of criteria.

TY! @APHumanGeog for #6 Worldmapper: The world as you've never seen it before

TY! @APHumanGeog for #6 Worldmapper: The world as you've never seen it before | Students with dyslexia & ADHD in independent and public schools | Scoop.it

"Worldmapper is a collection of world maps, where territories are re-sized on each map according to the subject of interest."

 

#6 on the Top 10 list of 2011 resources is this mapping website that provides us with another way to present global datasets in a way that is more visually appealing and more intuitive to analyze and interpret the patterns.  Among the many compelling cartograms on this site is this one showing the prevalance of HIV, highlighting the disproportionate impacts of AIDS/HIV in Sub-Saharan Africa.
