Title: World Bank: Mapping for Results
Url: http://maps.worldbank.org/maps/
Publisher: World Bank
Description: Upon entering The World Bank's homepage, even the most experienced researcher can feel a bit intimidated. The site contains thousands of documents, and even though they offer a nice search engine, it can be difficult at times to get to specific items quickly. Recently, the World Bank teamed up with Google maps to create a very nice "mash-up" that serves as a visual entry point for visitors looking for projects, news, and statistics. Using the Google map directional arrows and zoom functions, visitors can scroll around to look for different resources. The site also contains a legend which tracks low to high income areas, along with active projects sponsored by the World Bank. Finally, visitors can also toggle the map's "satellite" and "hybrid" views on and off as they see fit. Overall, this is a tremendous resource and one that will warrant several return visits.
