What does 7 Billion People Look Like?

By the end of 2011, it is projected that the Earth’s population will pass 7 billion! Have you ever wondered what that looks like? Esri has created maps to explore just this. These interactive maps answer each of the following questions:

Where do People Live?

How Rapidly is Population Growing?

How Long are People Living?

Each map allows users to click on specific regions and countries to see detailed maps for each population. For instance, did you know that the United States houses 309,050,816 people?

It’s a big world out there! Check it out for yourself!


When Esri was founded in 1969, it realized even then that geographic information system (GIS) technology could make a difference in society. GIS helps people to solve problems at local, regional, national, and global scales. Access maps and apps at ArcGIS.com. Esri is a proud partner of GovLoop. Check out Esri on Facebook and Twitter.
