L’avenir démographique de l’Europe: transformer un défi en opportunité. Communication de la Commission du 12 octobre 2006 intitulée «L’avenir démographique de l’Europe, transformer un défi en opportunité» [COM(2006) 571 final - Non publiée au Journal officiel].
L'Union européenne (UE) doit aujourd’hui faire face au déclin démographique, au faible accroissement naturel et au vieillissement d’une partie de la population.

And for good reason; it might be the most intuitive look at global pop. density ever cobbled together. The brainchild of Fathom Information Design, 'Dencity' uses small pixels to connote density, big ones to convey wide-open, unpopulated spaces. Fast Company explains why the design works: In the visual syntax of infographics and maps, bigger equals... well, bigger. Fathom Information Design/Promo image I don't really get what's so unorthodox about this; to me, it seems downright intuitive. China. Counterintuitive or not, it is indeed a brilliantly effective way to convey where population centers are grouped, and where there's still free range.
