The dataset shows the population per square kilometre from the 2011 census, the first time a grid has been used for these figures. This gives a significant increase in detail, particularly in regional areas, over previous approaches. Here I’ve converted their data to an interactive map so you can see specific areas in greater detail. Update: I’ve created two other versions on request from commenters. Here’s the same map with a log scale to better view the population difference in regional areas, and here’s one with transparency and place names. Nobody lives here: the green areas have a combined population of 0.

*****World Population Density Interactive Map

Integrating huge volumes of satellite data with national census data, the GHSL has applications for a wide range of research and policy related to urban growth, development and sustainability, and is available as open data. The dataset encourages understanding of the complex hierarchy of human settlement, rather than making simple rural-urban divisions. Some introductory highlights are discussed here with links for further information. Megaregions and Diverse Urban Forms In the early 20th century, geographers like Patrick Geddes observed how rail and road networks were allowing rapidly growing cities to fuse together into vast sprawling conurbations.

Image: metrocosm The map is the latest addition to a long-running string of population maps tweeted out by Conrad Hackett, a Pew Research demographer with a very interesting and very popular Twitter feed. The maps show how and where people are concentrated in different regions of world, including contributions from some great data visualizers as well as a few of my own. It’s no surprise that people are not evenly spread out across the Earth. #Map divides #Norway in three parts of equal population. North is colder and more sparsely populated.

Mapped history of population expansion in Brazil

Tuesday, December 20, 2016 Mapped history of population expansion in Brazil Early this month we shared an animation created by Nathan Yau mapping the history of population expansion in the US. Here is a relatively simpler but still a nice animation of population growth in Brazilian municipalities between 1872 and 2010. This gif is based on population census data and it was created by a data visualization team at Nexo, which is one of the best news websites in Brazil. Animation: World population by region from 1950 to 2100. Africa will overtake Asia! Italy Divided Into 3 Areas of Equal Population - MoverDB.com. Map created by reddit user Ramesses_Deux The map above shows Italy divided into regions each with a roughly equal population of 20 million people.

And in case your’re wondering, here’s a bit more info about each of the regions: Green region: Population 20.1 million people and Italy’s wealthiest region. Its biggest city is Milan (also Italy’s biggest city) which has a metro population of 6.6 million people. White Region: Population 20.3 million people and contains the capital city of Rome, which in is only the 3rd biggest metro area by population with 4.4 million people.

Population distribution (and roads) of Greenland. With about 56,000 inhabitants, Kalaallit Nunaat (Greenland) can be considered a micronation on a mega island.

Population distribution (and roads) of Greenland

More than simply a home for 31% of the total population, capital Nuuk is the economic, cultural and political heart of the country, as well as the main port. Because of its dominance, its modern lifestyles and its close ties with Denmark -the former colonist and still the (economic) mother country- Nuuk is not always seen in a good light by the other Kalaallit (Greenlanders). Whereas others supposedly live in harmony with nature, the capital were a modern metropole out of touch with Greenlandic life. Human Population Through Time. How high are you?

Predicted spread of humans around the world. World Population Cube - Views of the World. Last November’s theme of the Super Science Saturday at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History was Planet Earth.

World Population Cube - Views of the World

As part of the activities I contributed a map cube which I created a few years ago.Cubic globes are not a new idea. They put a nice twist to showing just a simple map, and more importantly, they allow for some activity which get the kids involved just as much as adults. A cube is much less work than creating a spheric version of Earth, and (as said by Carlos Furuti on his online cube globe collection) the cube is an ideal introduction to folding one’s own pseudoglobes. At last November’s Super Science Saturday I displayed some of my work and offered a ‘Map Cube Activity’ where children (and adults) could cut, fold and glue their own globes. If all 7bn people lived as densely as people in #Manhattan we'd all fit into #NewZealand. Two Centuries of Population, Animated. You’ve likely seen the population density map of the United States in one form or another.

Two Centuries of Population, Animated

A lot of people per square mile reside in big cities, fewer people reside in suburban areas, and a lot fewer people reside in rural areas. Cities weren’t always cities though. Rural wasn’t always rural. If you look at people per square mile over a couple of centuries, you get a better idea of how the country developed. The animated map above shows population density by decade, going back to 1790 and up to recent estimates for 2015. As you watch, keep in mind that the map is based on data that was available and that it only represents the United States population. This is especially notable during the first century. Nerd Notes I used R to generate the maps and FFmpeg to string the images into a video.Data are originally from the Census Bureau but made much more accessible by NHGIS. World population maps. Introduction The Gridded Population of the World (GPW) series, now in its fourth version (GPWv4), models the distribution of human population (counts and densities) on a continuous global surface.

World population maps

Since the release of the first version of this global population grid in 1995, the essential inputs have been population census tables and corresponding geographic boundaries. For GPWv4, population input data are collected at the most detailed spatial resolution available from the results of the 2010 round of censuses, which occurred between 2005 and 2014. The input data are extrapolated to produce population estimates for the years 2000, 2005, 2010, 2015, and 2020. What if the largest countries had the largest populations? -
