The zero population covers 4.61 million square miles of the US, which is around 47-percent of the country’s land mass. So there are a lot of places where you can go and live away from the hustle bustle of anything.
Ultimately, I made this map to show a different side of the United States. Human geographers spend so much time thinking about where people are. I thought I might bring some new insight by showing where they are not, adding contrast and context to the typical displays of the country’s population geography.
