is still broken, only giving me a population of zero

Draw radius, clicked "Find Population" and continue to get "The estimated population in the radius is 0 Zero" as Output. Attempted multiple areas and defined radius manually and drew radius - nothing works.

This is such a great idea and it would be a wonderful resource but drawing a circle in 250 mile radius around Washington, D.C. tells me there are zero people there.

Out of the three free population discovery services I could find (NASA SEDEC,etc and this), none of them could offer a Google Maps overlay. They all use OSM. I feel like the former offers more detail. In future I wish that you would consider adding a Google Maps overlay
