20161111 — Cartogram Hexmaps with Tilegrams
This session focuses on Tilegrams, a hex-based cartogram generator. You will not be required to run a local server for this session, though you may find it useful to have a text editor on hand for editing data. If you do not already have a favorite one, go ahead and download Sublime.
- Customize and export a CSV file in Excel or Google Sheets. Create a cartogram by importing the file into the interface.
- Download some Census data, format and export it in Excel or Google sheets, and upload the data to build a custom map.
- Export an SVG map and customize it in a vector-based design appication (i.e. Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape).
- Use your downloaded topojson file in combination with D3.js to render your map in the browser.
