Klaus Schulte: World Population Cartograms

"In one of my recents projects, I’ve created a world population cartogram. In such a map, country size represents population. Each one-by-one square stands for 500,000 people. Each country exists of as many squares as needed to represent its population. Unfortunately, in Tableau you cannot create cartograms by default (other than for example in datawrapper). Nevertheless, when you go to the Tableau Public search, you will find some (contiguous and grid/tile) cartograms available too."
