The Population Map - Laminated, roilled & tubed (35" x 52") The world as never revealed before! See where the human beings of the world live, and how many are where. The map image is startling, provocative and BEAUTIFUL. 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. The main map is enhanced by a series of startling and informative images at the bottom: Population, by continent, throughout human history. This series of "snapshot" images shows the people, and where they were at (1) 100,000 years ago, (2) at the time of the birth of Christ, (3) at 1650 AD, (4) at 1900 AD, and includes (5) population projections for the year 2150. There is also a map of population density showing where there are more than 30 people per square mile. In contrast to the usual continents of land, this density image shows the continents and islands of humankind!
