The World’s Population Density, Visualised

It’s difficult to get a handle on the population density around the world. Fortunately, this visualisation makes it a little easier to get your head round it.

Put together by Derek Watkins, it’s actually interactive: you get to use a slider to shift the population density and see it change before your eyes. You should head to his website to try it out for yourself. The image above shows the areas around the world that house five people per square mile or more.
