This map displays "a gridded population cartogram of the EU27 member states without any borders drawn onto it."

It was created by Benjamin Hennig of the Sasi Research Group (University of Sheffield) - http://www.viewsoftheworld.net/?page_id=631

The maps was made as: "a reminder that here we really are all in this together regardless the place we live on the continent (and the islands surrounding it), instead of all against each other"
