The Cool Maps Showcase from Esri
Esri has put together a nice showcase of maps which use the Esri mapping platform. Cool Maps includes maps of San Francisco crime data, the New York CitiBike network and #Ferguson Tweets.
The maps have obviously been picked to showcase the range of map styles, visualization techniques and capabilities of the Esri platform. There are fifteen maps in total, covering a range of subjects. The World's Happiest Countries map is one of my favorites. The map provides a slideshow of the world's happiest countries (based on the 2013 World Happiness Report). As the map moves from country to country an outline polygon morphs and animates around the map to highlight the currently featured country.
