The Living Dead of Andorra

... or 'How Not to Map Life Expectancy Around the World' 
After looking at average heights around the world earlier today it seems like a good idea to look at the average life expectancy of different countries across the globe. Unfortunately this 3DFx Widget - Life Expectancy map is as bad as Le Pais' average height map is good.

Although it's mentioned in the footnote, it is worth reminding that El Pais only massaged the data of NCD Risk Factor Collaboration (NCD-RisC) publication 'A century of trends in adult human height' available here https://elifesciences.org/content/5/e13410

How to Create Map Backgrounds

Nice background effect for maps from codrops. Replace marker pop-ups with whole page content that can be seen through the map.
Transparent maps with image and video backgrounds can create interesting geographical context on interactive maps. These background effects are achieved by placing a video or image behind a map and adjusting the opacity of the map - so that the video or image can be seen through the map.
