World Map of Family Name

When I enter my family name at the "Origin of the name xxxxx"search, a world map comes up to show the distribution of the name. For example, the highest population of the name I input, appears in France, and more specifically in Southwest France. I find this distribution map very fascinating. My question is how was this data collected? Was it a collection of census information? Was it from other family genealogical researchers findings?

The map is made from the collection of family trees.
