Making an Infographic Using Architectural Design: World Population Holding Hands in London

The world is a big place with a lot of people. Have you ever wondered the size of the area that would be taken up if the everyone in the world held hands? Using typical architectural design data we have assumed that 4 x 4 people (16) would stand, holding hands, in an area of 2 x 2 m (4m²).

Data Used:

World Population
7.4 Billion People

UK’s Population
64.1 Million People

China’s Population
1.357 Billion People

Now we have the right data, it’s just a case of superimposing it onto a map:

World Population superimposed over London
World population superimposed over the UK

There you have it: if the entire population of the world held hands, we could all fit into an area roughly the size of Greater London. Public transport might be a bit of a nightmare, though…
