AMAZING MAPS: World population density plotted in 3D

PortandTerminal.com, November 30, 2020

HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA – This map neatly visualizes in 3D where Earth’s 7.8 billion people live. It was created by Alasdair Rae of Sheffield, England, a former professor of urban studies who is the founder of Automatic Knowledge.

No land is shown on the map, only the locations where people actually live. The higher the spike, the more people live in an area. Where there are no spikes, there are no people (look how Canada with its relatively small population almost completely disappears).

Here’s Alasdair Rae had to say about his map.
