Interactive map: World population by latitude and longitude

population-latitude-longitude André Christoffer Andersen created this nifty interactive map that estimates world population at any coordinate.
Andersen was inspired by Bill Rankin's data visualizations. According this this map, the most populous coordinate is in the Punjab region. Some of the data seems shifted a bit, so the spike for Mexico City is a little too far east, but it's a cool proof of concept!
