There is a staggering amount of data powering this
pretty map, which depicts ongoing population changes across the entire earth between 1990 and 2015.

However, the coolest thing about it, I think, is that it bares a remarkable likeness to one of my favourite album covers; Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures.

Were Joy Division clandestine cartographers? Population prophets alluding to some Armageddon?!
Is it too spookily coincidental that their album cover in actuality is a printout of a pulsar star’s emissions
– not unlike LIDAR which are laser emissions used in mapping!

More importantly, perhaps, how cool are these shoes?
