world map by population

What I like about this map is that it takes otherwise familiar, unsurprising data and presents it in a novel way.
I'm intrigued by the possibilities of stretching this model -- which in my mind amounts to forcing two conceptually irreconcilable or at least disparate data measures into the same representation -- to see how far it can go and still make sense.
