MAPS IN THE NEWS:
A cartogram is a map that's been weighted for a particular variable. In this case, the variable is beehives. Humans have kept beehives for thousands of years, and by 2016, beekeepers had an estimated 90 million hives worldwide. This cartogram shows where beekeeping is most popular. (Having trouble making it out? The four countries with the most beehives are India, China, Turkey, and Iran.) worldmapper.org/maps/beehives-2016/
