The most famous people from Worcester, Evesham and Malvern have been revealed, according to a new interactive map.

Mapbox researcher and geographer, Topi Tjukanov, developed the insightful map which reveals the birthplaces of the most 'notable people' around the world.

The data is based on a study published in June this year from researchers from the University of Paris. 

A person's significance was calculated based on information scraped from Wikipedia and Wikidata. 

The data accounts for a series of factors including the number of Wikipedia entries, their average length, the average number of views from 2015-18 as well as the total number of external links.

"The data contains a rank value and a notability "sum value" these are used to determine which names are shown and how big they are," Mr Tjukanov explained to users on Twitter.

You can explore the map and view the noteworthy people from all over the world in four different categories:

  • Culture
  • Discovery & Science
  • Leadership
  • Sports & Games
