World Population Distributed by Latitude and Longitude

David Taylor and the team at CityMetric have recently posted a simple and effective chart to show that the population of Canada is not as north as we might think. This reminded me of a another map, that we posted almost five years ago ....

Bored of those traditional population maps, I've posted this inventive chart/map of the world population distributed by Latitude and Longitude. It was created in 2008 by Bill Rankin, who you might know from his website Radicalcartography.
