Water water everywhere, but will there be any to drink in 2030?

Maps can be, and often are, built to show more than just location. This data map created by Hal Watts shows the amount of water usage through out the world predicted for the year 2030.
He cut out each country from flat sponges and then poured the predicted water needs scaled down onto each and then photographed them in raking light. It gives an interesting point of view of an important topic. To view more of his work go here.
