Heat Map: Internet Population in Each Country

Last week, we have shared a world heat map about the most popular websites in the world and internet freedom rankings across the globe. Today, we find another heat map about the internet – internet population in each countries that the map is created by┬áthe Information Geographies project at the Oxford Internet Institute.



The map is created based on the data in 2011 that on both country’s internet users and total population from the World Bank. Similar to the previous introduced maps, the size of the countries depend on the total internet population, and the color of the countries represents the percentage of that country’s population that’s online.

Let’s take a look in China, which has a huge number of internet users because of its massive population in general, but the the percentage of citizens on the internet is lower than some European countries.

Still, the total internet population in the map equals to about one-third of Earth’s global population only.
