Population Map - 2005 Version  

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 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.

Paper, folded - 35" x 52" Price: $20.00 
Laminated, rolled and plastic-tubed - 35" x 52" Price: $29.95

The map is enhanced by a series of startling and informative images at the bottom 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 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!
