See country data plotted as 3d bars rising from the surface of Global-i, an interactive animated globe. For other map visualizations of county data, try Maplecroft Maps, Worldmapper, and Social Explorer's Census Data Maps. Worldprocessor has over 300 beautiful physical globes depicting different data sets. A variety of different map-based visualizations are also available at Radical Cartography. For an interesting mind-map visualization of relationships between countries, check out the WINDS relation browser, based on data from the CIA Factbook. Interesting non-map-based country data presentations include Gapminder and the Worldometers. [via information aesthetics]

Obviously, also don't forget about The Map Room, by our own mcwetboy.

And coincidentally, I just browsed across this totally awesome map of the US by Serge Seidlitz, via we *heart* prints.

monju: I did not know that Minnesota and Michigan have mountains just like Idaho!

You've never camped high in the mountains of northern Minnesota? You're really missing out.

Most awesome post. Also, I now have severe map-programming envy.
