Indigenous Dot Map of Australia

The City Science group at Monash University has created an Indigenous Dot Map of Australia.

Every dot on the map shows an indigenous person counted in the 2011 Australian census. The map shows the spatial distribution of the 699,990 indigenous Australians counted. Indigenous Australians make up 3% of the total Australian population.

Looking at the map indigenous Australians seem to make up a larger proportion of the population in the north of the country. Apparently the Northern Territory has the largest proportion (30%) of its population who are indigenous, which appears to be borne out by the map.

The City Science group has also created a Chinese Population Dot Map of Australia. This map shows the distribution of the 866,001 Australians who identified themselves as Chinese in the 2011 census.
