World Freedom Atlas


For all of you who are teaching, studying, or are just interested in the Social Sciences, check out the World Freedom Atlas at http://freedom.indiemaps.com/

What is it? Great question!

The World Freedom Atlas was orginally a project created by Zachary Johnson for a graduate level Geography class at the University of Wisconsin.

It is an interactive map that measures freedom, democracy, human rights and governments around the world. The map covers the years 1990-2006. You can check one of the dozens of criteria on the menu to the left and then scroll over each country and check their rating.

By the way...this site was found through www.StumbleUpon.com, the virtues of which were enumerated in a previous blog. If you like what you see at the World Freedom Atlas, check out StumbleUpon.com so you can find other similar websites.
