Geographers always find innovative ways to display geographic data and at the same time amuse people. One such map technique that I always find very interesting is cartograms. I was just checking about India’s population and came across this cartogram.
The funniest thing was that as soon as my friend saw the above map, he compared India to a “morbidly obese person”.
Some Facts about India Population (Did you know that! )
1. India’s population is 1.13 Billion
2. India’s population is 4 times America’s population and 1/3 in area
3. Every year, population almost equivalent to Australia’s population (20 million) gets added to India (1 billion)
