Tilegrams in R

Last month Pitch Interactive launched an online tool for tiled cartograms, or tilegrams for short. Upload your state-by-state data, and it does the rest. Now you can make them in R, thanks to Bhaskar Karambelkar, since I know you’re just itching to make your own election maps. Tags: cartogram, R

Make your own tiled cartograms

A challenge of using geographic maps to show data is that larger regions inevitably get more visual real estate. Cartograms try to solve this problem by sizing regions by the data instead of land mass. Tilegrams by Pitch Interactive makes it easy to construct tiled versions at the US state level. Upload your data, adjust the resolution to your liking, and export for your own purposes. Nice. Tags: cartogram, Pitch...
