Graphics and Visualisations
The original figures from book can be viewed below.
The image shown on the overview shows the Earth at Night projected on an equal population map that gives every person on the planet an equal amount of map space. It highlights the existing inequalities that become visible in our night skies, with some of the world's population having poor access to electricity that allows them to pollute the night skies with light. The map has been drawn by Benjamin Hennig and is explained in further detail and shown in high resolution on his website.
Ben has also created a novel World Population Atlas using the same mapping technique. It shows the countries of the world in their real size and shapes according to the population distribution. The page also gives an overview of the estimated population changes for each country in an interactive population cartogram.
