MDG Maps

Great resource for geography and sociology. I like how you can export the maps as pdf files for inclusion in a report. From the About Page...

MDG Maps is a geovisulization tool for the Millenium Development Goals.
It enables one to generate printable maps for the different indicators. Select an indicator and the data will be loaded and rendered. One can use the slider at the bottom of the map to select data for different years. One can customize the map by selecting different color schemes and background colors. To export the map to pdf click the button at the top of the map. Clicking on a country will zoom in to the selected country and display printable charts for that country.
This tool uses data from the Millenium Development Goals dataset at the World Bank Data Site  and Color Schemes from Cynthia Brewer at Color Brewer
