World Data Center… – World Maps Illustrating Climate Change, Population Density,…

The World Data Center for Human Interactionsin the Environment, part of Columbia University, uses data sets from NASA and other government agencies to create world maps illustrating population and environmental changes. 

The maps include: Climate, Conservation, Governance, Hazards, Health, Population, Poverty and Sustainability.

 All of the maps can be downloaded in PDF or JPG formats.  The JPG images are very large and print out without distortion on a poster printer.  They also project well on a SMARTBoard.  If you are studying environment or population, this site is a must.
