Become a Dot and Make the Map

Population dot maps have become very popular over the last few months. Usually these maps are created using data gathered from national censuses.

Tyler Olson however has decided to build his dot map of the world from the ground up. And you can help. All you have to do is visit Yapmap and a dot at your location will automatically be added to the map. The more people who visit the map then the better this dot map of the world will become.

Even with only a few visitors Yapmap is beginning to make shape. I can already make out north America and Western Europe on the map. If you are reading this then please visit Yapmap as I'm really keen to find out what the map will look like by the end of today.
