Some days ago a friend sent me this map developed by the European Union showing the accesibility of the different points of the world. It shows the time that takes to reach from anywhere to a city with a population bigger than 50,000.
DMultimedia, the new blog created by the responsible of the online graphics at ELPAIS.com, Carlos Gámez, I saw this 'Multiwidget' that explains what happens in the world right now. Click on the image to watch it!
And if you want to know more things on what's happening right now on Earth, you can check Breathing Earth (thanks to Mario Tascón for the link). It simulates the CO2 emissions, births and deaths by country on real time.
