Continuous Cartogram

Description

Bored of the painstakingly dull looks of traditional maps? Continuous cartogram can help easily identify the big outliers in a dataset, while giving a unique look to your maps. A continuous cartogram plots two measures on a map by scaling the land borders depending on the first measure selected, and then coloring the areas by the second measure. Available are region, country and states maps.

The column containing area names should be selected in the Label Field. The areas will be shaped based on the magnitude selected for the Measure FieldColorField adds the second dimension, showing this second measure on the nodes by highlighting them appropriately, and adding a color legend.

Please note that the Measure Field and Color Field need to contain numeric fields and remember to select an Expression for each of these fields by choosing from the drop down.
