you have to do it clockwise like one of the people said

I think this is based on some average for the area, and it's not based on anything more than that, so for very small specific areas it isn't very good

Validated the results with Environics and Census data. GREAT TOOL! Thank you so much.

I keep getting nonsensically low population numbers for any area I select, even with larger cities and towns. Not sure if this was a recent issue but I don't really remember this site giving me lowball numbers in the past

"Too many vertices" - What's up with that!

Tip #1 Click Reset!
Tip #2 Draw CLOCKWISE.
Now you will get correct population.

On my win10 PC ONLY CLOCKWISE drawn polygons give correct population.

This is nice. It's a little confusing the way the polygon tool tries to zoom in when you draw a line. And I don't know how accurate the numbers are. But I like it.

By Galaxy Lillie on 24th September 2019
WHY WON'T THE SITE WORK?

It wouldn't let me see the population of the US so yeah its broken

This massively underestimates populations. I selected an area including most of Mexico as well as California and Texas, and it showed as about 20k, should be over 10 times that.

I think that you should have latitude and longitude for locations as well

Only worked the first time i used it. gave me an accurate reading for the bay area at around 6.3 million. Did the Dallas Ft Worth area and it gave me 80k
On 6th August 2019
Combined population of KS and western MO returned total of 600k. I would expect it to be ~10x this many.

literally completely incorrect
the pearl river delta should have 100 Million residents but this map says 1 million
