Cloropleth map
A blank map of the world for multiple uses. Oxfam uses Peters Projection for all of its maps of the world. If desired, teachers and students are welcome to undertake a webquest and discuss why we may use this map.

  • What were your first impressions when you saw this map?
  • Why did Peters create his map?
  • What countries are bigger, and what countries are smaller?
  • How does this projection affect your view of the world?
  • Why might Oxfam choose to use this map?
