Summary

Cartogram derived from the April 2012 GPS point dataset.

Countries are sized in proportion to the number of GPS points falling within their borders.

This is a first draft. Caveats :-

- this was done using a spatial join on a low resolution grid (1 degree square), so smaller countries may appear smaller or larger than they should

- the sample size was quite small (1%), although this still represents 28 million points ;-)

- it only counts those points falling on land, and doesn't include off-shore points inside of maritime boundaries
