“How Many Really?” Is An Interesting Tool


How Many Really? is a BBC interactive that shows you how many people were affected by or participated in major historical events, and then you can compare other numbers with them.

It’s a sister site to last year’s BBC’s tool, How Big Really? That site allowed you to compare the physical dimensions of historical events with locations of your own choosing.

Thanks to Information Aesthetics for the tip.

  2. This is a very good tool.

    I like the animations when it compares different types of data.
