Fun, educational map websites
Many popular maps circulated online combine maps with demographic data to yield eye-opening results. They might better be described as infogaphics.

Maps on the Web is a Tumblr blog that posts several cool maps a day.
Amazing Maps is another Tumblr blog that spotlights neat maps.
Both are worth checking out.
