Population Cartograms

March 17, 2015

These really give a different perspective on the world! I find it interesting how some countries are overwhelmingly focused on one city, but the populations of others, like Italy and Germany, are more uniformly distributed, to the point that the cartogram doesn’t look that different from the physical map. Could it be, that Germany’s history as a collection of independent states has been the main influence on its current population distribution?

Look here and compare countries! Simply click on a country on the physical map to see the cartogram.
