In this visualization module, you can explore the locations and environments of the world population. The map will provide visualization of the relationship between human settlement and food as discussed in Chapter Four, Population and Food. You will see how population growth and its environmental footprint have steadily increased in size and area. This population history begins with settled agriculture on to the evolution of megacities.

The map is composed of three different data sets: five themes of human milestones; two classes of points of population density; and five thematic map overlays. Each of these data sets can be toggled on-and-off using the three headers, dropdown menus. Along the base of the map is a timeline where you may toggle on-and-off global human society’s milestones across those five theme categories. The timeline can also be played to animate the movement and growth of world population clusters. In the “Menu” dropdown in the top-right there is a link to “How to Use the Map & Timeline” for figures and descriptions of map features.

When you open the link to the interactive, a pop-up box will provide you an introduction. Read the description. Then click on the logo for Population Connection. On the homepage, navigate to the drop-down menu and select the “About Us” page. Read the short description about the organization supporting the interactive map.

When you open the interactive map in its default view, click around and familiarize yourself. Locate the Key, timeline slider and play button.
