A new interactive map is made to represent every single person in the United States and Canada. 

According to CNN, the map was designed by Brandon Martin-Anderson, a grad student at MIT. 

The data comes from the most recent censuses and Martin-Anderson says the map is so successful because people want to be 'a piece of something larger.'

This is not the first map based on a census, but it is the first map to make a dot representation of every single person.
