On 20 October, the number of refugees arriving in Greece in 2015 passed the half-million mark with a group of 8,000 people disembarking on the Aegean islands.

The scale of the refugee crisis can, at times, be difficult to fathom - but this visualisation may help.

The below visualisation by the Finnish site Lucify takes data from the UN's refugee Agency, the UNHCR.
