(Pics) A Creative Look At Global Population Data

A set of histograms visualizes latitudinal vs. longitudinal distribution.

Jackie Rangel

Harvard PhD student Bill Rankin has created an interesting graphic interpretation of global population data as distributed across latitude and longitude. As Gwen at Sociological Images points out, although the findings themselves are not particularly revelatory, having a visual point of comparison for population densities across the globe is a useful tool for understanding emerging patterns. As these histograms are based on the 2000 Census, we wonder what updated iterations might look like once the recently-concluded 2010 Census data is available.
