Real time Birth and Death map.

This is wild:

This simulation gives an eerily omniscient vantage on the world as it fills.
In 1950, there were 2.5 billion humans. Today there are just over 7 billion. In another 30 years, according to U.S. Census Bureau projections, there will be more than 9 billion.

Brad Lyon has a doctoral degree in mathematics and does software development. He wanted to make those numbers visual. Last year he and designer Bill Snebold made a hugely popular interactive simulation map of births and deaths in the U.S. alone—the population of which is on pace to increase 44 percent by 2050. Now, Lyon takes on the world.

Fixed link, if this does not work for you (it seem intermittent), Open the first link and click no simulation map.

2. Tried to fix link, you may need to go through the article to get it.

Fixed link, if this does not work for you (it seem intermittent), Open the first link and click no simulation map.
