Thanks for the pregnant widow link - a very interesting comment and one that chimes with the way I view the Clarke Award.

It's interesting to do a blink comparison the population distribution and land area distribution maps:

The latitude maps aren't really comparable to each other, though; the land one is a percentage of land while the population one is total population, so they scale differently as you approach the poles.

I think the best fix would be to redo them using a sinusoidal projection (though you could also make the population map into a map of population density).
