The Great British Map; Or Great Britain vs. The United Kingdom vs. The British Isles

A vector map of the world's 9th. largest island that attempts to help answer some of the more perplexing and confusing facets of geography in this part of the world

  • So if the ISO 3166-2 code is GBR, how come the country is called the United Kingdom?
  • But if England is a country and the United Kingdom is a country, how come England is part of the United Kingdom?
  • What about Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland?

Using data from Natural Earth and visualisations from D3 this map tries to explain what the difference is between Great Britain, the United Kingdom and the British Isles.

Meanwhile, here's a blog post.
