Example text

This chapter begins with traditional equal area maps of Britain to show the distributions of people over the land and then progresses to equal population cartograms to show how that population is made up and how it is changing. The two types of projection are placed side by side in many of the prints so that the different impressions given can be compared and a feeling gained for how the use of cartograms alters the visual impression, even when the places depicted and their shading are identical.

Half the people of Britain live on only 3% of the land shown in Colour Print A. Colour Print B is a ward population cartogram where each ward is shown as a circle of size in proportion to its population. The cartogram would be of little use if most of these circles overlapped, so in making the cartogram a map is first drawn with circles so small that none overlap and all these circles are placed at the centres of wards on a land map. The circles are then allowed to expand slowly, and if they touch they push each other out of the way.

Colour Print B shows that most of the people live in places where many other people live. Both of these facts are true, but the first focuses on the land and the second focuses on the people. This atlas is concerned with people and so cartograms are used throughout. This is because population cartograms give prominence to people depending not on how much land they occupy, but on their numbers. Each of the eight colour prints which follow refers to the page on which it is described. All the other maps and cartograms in this atlas are described in the text on the page facing them.
