Among recent TED talks my favourite has been Danny Dorling's talk on maps.
We have incredible amounts of interesting data about our planet and our societies.
Creative artists can use these to make maps which show us how and where we live in truly new ways.
Dorling's talk presents and explains these fascinating maps very well.
Dorling is also a clear speaker. He talks in simple, easy to grasp sentences.
The talk also has good quality subtitles available in several languages.
