Hexagonal hierarchical cartogram: Towards a thematic map of Brazil

Moises Colares Barreto, Doris Kosminsky, Claudio Esperança
2018 InfoDesign: Brazilian Journal of Information Design  
thematic maps, cartograms, hexagonal hierarchical cartogram, Brazil The popularity and availability of digital tools has boosted the use of thematic maps in infographics and data visualizations.  ...  Unlike general purpose maps, thematic maps are aimed at communicating the spatial distribution of a particular topic or theme, such as population density, voter preference or income.  ...  The proportional symbol maps, also known as graduated symbol maps, use symbols of different sizes to represent data ( Figure 2 ). The size of the symbol reflect its magnitude.  ...
