Backed by Google News Lab, we built an open source tool to make more statistically accurate maps, we call this tool “tilegrams”—from “tiled cartograms”. We made our own US state map based on 2015 population (which you can download from the tool) and incorporated others that we saw and appreciated in the media: FiveThirtyEight’s electoral vote tilegram from their 2016 Election Forecast and NPR’s one-tile-per-state tilegram. Read more about the tool on our blog post and try it out yourself!
