Tellmaps

1914 map of Europe

As an experiment, we have added a map to show 1914 data for Europe. Austria-Hungary is in its last years, Germany stretches all the way to current Kaliningrad, Ireland still a part of the United Kingdom. Statistics for 1914 are not abundant, but if there is a good set, we now can use this map to plot the data. We started with two tellmaps, one with population data, and the other one about military deaths during the First World War, with totals per country and casualties as percentage of mobilized soldiers.
