    Okay, so I've reorganized the points into continents (North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania, and Antarctica), so finding a point might be a little easier.

    I've also color coded the population as follows:
    • 1-5: Blue
    • 6-10: Green
    • 11-25: Yellow
    • 26-50: Orange
    • 51-100: Red
    • 100-n: Purple
    The color of the point is influenced by the points contained in the region it represents. For example, 3 people are listed under Brazil, but its color is yellow. This is because the states and cities within Brazil also contribute to its population count, which puts it in the range of 11-25.

    In addition to changing how the color is treated, I have changed the shapes of the points to reflect the associated region:
    • Countries are now squares.
    • Things smaller than countries but larger than cities (states, provinces, etc.) are now diamonds.
    • Cities are now circles.
    Some areas in Europe might have incorrect shapes due to me not knowing enough about the political boundaries of those regions/provinces (mainly France, Germany, Belgium, and the United Kingdom).

    For faster, easier reference, I've made this graphic legend to try and help remember the different shapes and colors:

    I think the representation of countries is entirely up to Google at this point. I haven't tried editing the name of a place yet, so maybe after class I can do some testing.
