This is the result of many hours of work. I wanted to come up with a way of viewing Canada’s 308 ridings based not on their geographical area, but as the groups of voters that they are. Luke Andrews did a great example of this kind of map, and that inspired me to make my own, but using hexagons instead of squares. I took great care to try to keep the ridings positioned next to their neighbours as best as I could.
I coupled the resultant cartogram with the output of some of my analyses of the election results, to generate the following interactive tool. I hope you like.
I have moved the tool to its own page. Click the image above to go to it!
