Map O’ The Day #28 – Water Wars

 

Another map from the International Networks Archive via Princeton U that presents some interesting views on the world’s water supply as well as current and future usage. Pretty amazing to think that even in the modern world that 7 people die every minute globally from a lack of clean water.

This map utilizes one of the Maga mapping principles, namely, using a system, or multiple views of information to understand the landscape. See the far right side to understand this chronological system which is depicting the evolution of the clean water issue.

Gotta love anything with toy soldiers in the design, and a strong use of color and image [silhouette] to provide bold emphasis on the usage by continent figures.
