A reminder of a tool that I shared some time ago, and which I was reminded of earlier today.

Luminocity has of course improved since the last time I flagged it up here, and contains a range of interactive data visualisations created by Duncan Smith of CASA UCL.

There are the following maps, which can be accessed from the home screen now. Very helpful for investigating urban geographies.

  • World Population Density
  • World City Populations - 1950-2035
  • UK Urban density and dynamics
