Map of world population, showing uninhabited or nearly uninhabited areas in gray.

The list of uninhabited regions includes a number of places around the globe. The list changes year over year as human beings migrate into formerly uninhabited regions, or migrate out of formerly inhabited regions.

List[edit]

As a group, the list of uninhabited places are called the "nonecumene"; this is a special geography term which means the uninhabited area of the world.[1]
