How does population map work?

  • We just visualize United Nations population data so that the user can understand it easily. Each country has its location on the map, and its population data is available from the UN.
  • The total population of the world is calculated by adding up the populations of all countries.
  • There are some countries whose population changes faster than others, so they appear more on the map than others.
  • On the map, you will often see the flags of some countries appear at different locations. This represents changes in the population of that country that are occurring at the moment.
