For IAES Weather unit: 2013 Climate Events Map
Most readers heard of an extreme weather event in the news or experienced it themselves because these events occurred around the world: drought in the American West, the typhoon in the Philippines, extreme heat in Australia, extreme cold in the U.K., heavy rains in China and Russia, and the shrinking of arctic glaciers. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2014/01/140122-noaa-extreme-weather-2013-climate-change-drought/
The NOAA releases monthly and annual analyses of global climate conditions. They present major climate anomalies and events - droughts, floods, storms, and the like - on a convenient map.

The Greatest Paper Map of the United States You’ll Ever See

USA Maps | Maps of USA States laminated wall map 50x35.3
The Greatest Paper Map of the United States You'll Ever See. Created by David Imus, a cartographer who worked alone on his map seven days a week for two full years. Nearly 6,000 hours in total. It would be prohibitively expensive just to outsource that much work. But Imus—a 35-year veteran of cartography who’s designed every kind of map for every kind of client—did it all by himself. He used a computer (not a pencil and paper), but absolutely nothing was left to computer-assisted happenstance. Imus spent eons tweaking label positions. Slaving over font types, kerning, letter thicknesses. Scrutinizing levels of blackness. It’s the kind of personal cartographic touch you might only find these days on the hand-illustrated ski-trail maps available at posh mountain resorts. Winner of mapmaking’s most prestigious honor, the “Best of Show” award at the annual competition of the Cartography and Geographic Information Society.

The map of the world if every country's population matched its size -- Here's a fun way to look at the world. What if every country's population actually matched its size? So more populous places like Japan and Vietnam that are cramped in tiny specks of land now get to stretch their feet a bit while uselessly big countries like Canada and Australia get their population booted to smaller spaces.
How the world map would look like if every country's population matched its size.
What if the Largest Countries had the Largest Populations? This map re-imagines the world atlas, placing the countries with the biggest populations in the countries with the largest land mass. That seems an eminently sensible suggestion and I can't foresee any problems with such a plan. I for one fully support the idea of the UK moving to Niger, if only to escape the incessant rain.
In this map, countries are labeled by finding their area ranking (out of the world’s countries), and then using the name of the country that has that same population ranking. For example, China, which is the fourth largest county by area, is labeled “Indonesia”, because Indonesia has the fourth biggest population in the world. As the map notes in the upper right corner, some interesting coincidences result - Yemen, Brazil, Ireland, and the US don’t change places with any country.
