The World Population Map 2015 is based on the most recent US State Dept projections. See where the human beings of the world live, and how many are where. This map makes learning the population of each country an exciting visual experience. Each country is shown proportional to its population. The map presents people, not a 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 map is enhanced by a series of startling and informative images on a bottom panel showing population by continent, throughout human history, including 100,000 years ago; at the time of the birth of Christ; at 1650 AD; at 1900 AD, and population projections for the year 2150. There is also a new panel showing the percentages of children under 15 years old -- the strongest predictor of future population growth.
The high-quality laminate in which the map is encapsulated allows you to draw on it or apply map dots to locations of interest without permanently marking the map. The lamination also makes the map very durable and protects against tears and stains.
This map is a unique, helping you understand where we as a species came from, where we are today and where we are going tomorrow.
