Worldmapper is a collection of world maps, where territories are re-sized on each map according to the subject of interest. There are now nearly 700 maps. Maps 1-366 are also available as PDF posters. Use the menu above to find a map of interest. In 2009 we added a series of maps of the world's population using a gridded cartogram approach: Worldmapper Population Atlas If you are interested in more background on map projections, read the short introductions about Worldmapper and map projections and gridded cartograms as a map projection.

Glen Canyon Dam Take a Virtual Tour of the Dam Glen Canyon Dam is the key storage unit in a far-reaching water development plan called the Colorado River Storage Project. When the dam was completed and Lake Powell was formed in 1963, the irregular flows of the Colorado River were brought under control. The now-steady flow from the dam and Lake Powell makes water developments possible throughout the Upper Colorado River Basin and provides a regulated supply of water to meet downstream commitments. The portion of Glen Canyon you can observe downstream from the dam is typical Navajo sandstone, a thick formation that extends downward about 500 feet below the riverbed.
