|I think this backwards and forwards version works well|
|It makes more sense to compare areas at the same latitude|
In the image above, I’ve picked out the ten most highly populated 1 degree cells but of course they are not all the same size – they get smaller the further away from the equator you are, because the lines of longitude narrow towards the poles. But even so, I think it’s probably safe to say the cell where New Delhi is has a lot of people in it, as do the other nine featured above.
Before that, I’ve embedded a version from YouTube, with an audio track.
|If you live below 30 degrees south you are quite special|
|People seem to like living where the land is|
|Above 30 degrees north is where it’s at|
|I’m one of the 5% – are you?|
And by longitude? I did that too and those files are at the GitHub repo link above but here’s a fast gif of it for now.
How I did this
