New Jersey's Population Mountains

New Jersey is the most densely populated state in the USA. However not all parts of the state are as densely populated as others. Three New Jersey towns appear on the list of the top 50 most densely populated places in the world. At the opposite extreme the town of Walpack has a population density of less than one person per square mile. has created a 3D map which shows the number of people living in each square mile in every New Jersey township. In 3D maps show parts of NJ are the most densely populated on the planet has used the Mapbox platform to show the population mountains of New Jersey towns. The taller the 3D towers on the map then the more densely populated the township. You can also click on the map to view the total number of people per square mile living in the selected area.

If you want to see how New Jersey's population density compares to other locations around the world then you should explore The Pudding's Human Terrain interactive map. This interactive map shows population density across the globe using 3D population pyramids. The Pudding has also analyzed their own map to explore some of the most densely populated areas of the world. In Population Mountains The Pudding takes a closer view at the population patterns in some of the world's most populated cities and regions.
