This cool map shows population density all over the world:

The pixels on Fathom Information Design's Dencity map get smaller the more people they represent -- meaning that sparsely-populated areas are low-resolution, and densely-populated ones are sharp and bright. It illustrates both the positive and negative aspects of density: Each pixel gets less space the more pixels there are, but that means that denser areas can fit more pixels and transmit more information. Also, it looks wicked cool. Click the image to go to the Fathom site, where you can look at details and buy it as a poster!
