Interactive Maps of Billionaires

Filed in Maps and Cartography by on April 29, 2012


Shown here are three interactive maps created using Google Fusion Tables.  The first map shows a gradient map of the world’s billionaires based on residency and aggregated by country.  The second map shows a heat map of the world’s billionaire’s based on their place of residence (aggregated by location).  The third map shows the individual locations of the residence listed.  All data was compiled from The Forbes World’s Billionaires 2012 list.

These interactive maps are a companion piece to the article Geography of Billionaires: Mapping Nationalities and Residency, which provides descriptive statistics and cartogram maps about the geography of the world’s billionaires.  The aggregate data by country and by residency location can be accessed after the interactive maps on this page.
