Cartogram: (http://www.ncgia.ucsb.edu/projects/Cartogram_Central/ ) a distorted map in which the sizes of geographic regions appear in proportion to their populations, whether it's people or goods, or other items. (May 18 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). ) The choice of unit used to establish the so-called population-density function affects the amount of distortion in the resulting cartogram. For example, distributing a state's population over its entire area generally produces a map with more recognizable features than does a county-by-county distribution, because cities cause substantial local distortions. From http://www.sciencenews.org/articles/20040828/bob8.asp : "So, people can make significant progress by applying an idea commonplace in one area to a field in which it has less, or no, currency."
