See where the human beings of the world live, and how many are where. This map makes learning the population of each country an exciting visual experience. Each country is shown proportional to its population. The map presents people, not territory. Each square of the grid on the map represents a million people.
From the perspective of population, China is the biggest country in the world! India is not far behind. For a real shock, compare Indonesia with the United States. This map shows how the USA is only a small part of the whole, 4.5% or less than one-twentieth of the Earth's humans.

Population is all about numbers, but often it's hard to grasp numbers. Turning numbers into graphics makes them easier to comprehend. But then the question arises, Where exactly are the graphics located? Where are they on the earth? Our map combines the comparative advantages of graphics with the locational power of a map to let you know... where the people are.
Because the grid squares are the same size everywhere on the map, on this map everyone is treated fairly. Many well-known maps show neither the land nor the people fairly. Every map gives up some aspect of reality to present another.
