This map shows the land surface resized by its total ecological footprint in each area interpolated from a population grid and national-level data for each country’s ecological footprint. Each transformed grid cell in the map is proportional to the total number of people living in that area multiplied by their respective national ecological footprint measured in global hectares consumption per capita.
This map uses data from Global Footprint Network, National Footprint and Biocapacity Accounts 2019 Edition (last accessed: July 2019). Population estimates for the year 2020 are based on data from the Gridded Population of the World (GPW), v4 at 0.25 degree resolution, released by SEDAC (Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center).
