Atlas of the Week: An Artistic View

This online compilation of atlases allows users to both search through a database of pre-created maps and to create new maps. It is very similar to CartoDB in its creation capabilities, yet offers some unique visual approaches. The “Featured Atlases” located at the bottom of the page are unique and visually appealing approaches to mapping just about every topic. The maps are also capable of layering dozens of issues together which are quickly sorted through in accessible, power-point like slides. I found it interesting to explore these projects and look at the topics they found most important as a part of their own maps.
