Mapping the world by its population is nothing new, but portraying the physical landscape of the map via the population produces a globe that most of us cannot recognize.

The population maps seen here feature England, the United States and the entire world. Check out how China is bulged beyond recognition, while Australia can barely be seen. Check out more on the population maps on the links below.

Implications - Geographers and those who study global demographics are doing so from a variety of growing perspectives. Where the influence of a given country may have once been measured by its geographical size or population, data analysis is now expanding to measure consumption levels, fast food consumption, population growth and many other measures.
