MAPS IN THE NEWS:
A cartogram is a map that has been weighted for a particular variable. In this case, the variable is population experiencing heatwave disasters from 2001-2017. (A heatwave disaster is defined as having killed 10 or more people, having affected 100 or more people, having resulted in a declaration of a state of emergency, or having led to a call for international assistance.) Although India and Japan experienced the most heatwave disasters during this period, the most heatwave-related fatalities occurred in Russia, France, and Italy. worldmapper.org/maps/heatwaves-total-2001to2017
