Britain awakes

The visualisation of a nation of 60 million people scattered across the land. Each spark of light signifies 200 men, women and children, located according to the last National Census. It all seems quiet until dawn breaks, and the nation is on the move.

Maps like you’ve never seen before!

I know you may think it a little odd, but I love looking at different types of map. Worldmapper is a collection of world maps and national maps where territories are re-sized on each map according to the subject of interest.

There are now nearly 700 maps. There are some great ones, like this one of the UK which shows the number of people that live in each part of the UK. As you can see, compared to London and the South East, Wiltshire is sparsely populated. Explore all sorts of maps like this by clicking on the link below:
