Time Magazine Map

I just realized that I forgot to post about the map(s) I found in a recent copy of Time Magazine. Unlike most of my classmate, who mangaed to find some very interesting maps, such as the Wired Magazine map, the ones I found in Time were very disappointing. I really expected that a newsmagazine like Time would have maps that really added to the content of their articles.

I focused primarily on a series of articles on India and the development of the next world power, according to Time. Unlike the Wired map, the maps did not take the place of any text, and unlike the maps on the current war, the maps did not illustrate any information regarding important events or social events. The maps Time included to illustrate their article were a basic population map of the country, and an inset of India on a globe to show it's relative location. I was disappointed to see that these maps could easily have been left out, and it wouldn't have made a difference.
