Using cartograms as an alternative mapping solution
February 27th, 2012 by Susan Smith
Benjamin D. Hennig at the University of Sheffield will be doing a plenary session at the Population Specialty Group Session at the AAG Annual Meeting in New York this year. He is including a new map of New York City.
“The gridded population cartogram of New York City is a first step towards a more detailed approach to using cartograms as an alternative mapping solution for larger scale urban areas. The following map was created with the help of GIS data from the NYC Department of City Planning and small-area census data of the most recent census in 2010.” – Benjamin Hennig
