Cartograms are powerful tools for visualizing information. Many people have seen the cartograms created after the 2000 and 2004 US Presidential Election and can attest to the power of their presentation. Unfortunately, cartograms are too time consuming and difficult to create to be used as common map making tools. Several algorithms for creating cartograms will be reviewed. Implementations as scripts for ArcGIS Desktop 9 will be presented.
