Why maps are quicker

Obviously a picture paints a thousand words. Fact. So an animation with lots of scrolling captions and flashy zoom-ins must paint about a million words.

That’s why Maps of War is my new favourite site. It’s got loads of animated maps which make complex history straight-forward and fun.

As all copywriters know, there are times when it’s easier to present information graphically instead of labouriously writing it out. The religion map above is a good example – it does the work of half an hour’s reading in about 90 seconds.

So down with words, and up with funky graphics. I’m off to the job centre.
