Only just noticed this thread. I am a map lover, but beware the danger of the projection!! Many of the ones that illustrate disproportionate populations etc are based upon a disproportionate map!! Most of the maps we use were developed in europe by people with a tendency to exaggerate the size and importance of places like, er... the UK and Netherlands! If you were to use a projection that properly scales countries the effect would be less. Except for Canada which really is huge and really is mostly empty.

Also beware statistics. The London Olympics showed a high correlation between medals won and sheep population.

... distribution of Sharia law.

purple: Sharia applies in full, including criminal law
yellow: Sharia applies in personal status issues only
orange: Regional variations in the application of sharia
dark green: Muslim country, but Sharia plays no role in the judicial system

What's the meaning of the different colors? Extent of implementation?

.... a computer simulated evolution of the whole universe (is this a "map"?) during the last 13 billion years. I guess we will never be able to verify this in reality, but it looks amazing!
