Please make it the way you had it before, where we could just click and didn't have to drag to create a radius.

Ben, please try again. An update has been made.

The circle/polygon icons aren't showing up on the map so I can't create a radius for the population estimate. I've tried a few different browsers (Edge, Firefox, Chrome) but none seem to work.

Fantastic tool. Please try and fix it!

Update: The population figures might be for 2010. I traced the boundaries of Washington, D.C. which is an easy and visible shape and it spit out 605,000 which lines up with its 2010 population. It has since grown to over 700,000.

Does anyone know how recent this population data is? I'm wondering if it's a bit old judging by the numbers I'm seeing around some fast-growing cities. However still a fantastic resource.

Tool will allow you to create a Radius if you specifically select from the drop down menu. However, once the radius is drawn the "Find Population" function no longer works
