People cite population density for the strangest arguments.

Regardless, to see the global perspective is certainly interesting - as a map by Geostata published to Reddit has shown.

India and China particularly attracted the attention of commenters on reddit, who noted that India is expected to surpass China's population by 2022.

In fact, many pointed to this aerial shot of New Delhi for an impressive closer view of the growing Indian population.

Also noticeable was how vast and unpopulated Australia is on the map, and how surprisingly defined Madagascar is.
