noncontiguous area cartograms

notes on noncontiguous cartograms and ActionScript 3 classes for producing them
Fully contiguous cartograms have stretched and distorted borders but perfectly maintained topologies. Like the Gastner-Newman diffusion-based cartograms we see all over the place. Though all sorts of cartogram designs have been produced, those with perfect topology preservation (fully contiguous cartograms) receive the majority of [...]

isolining package for ActionScript 3

A week or so back I wrote about a package I ported/modified to create the Delaunay triangulation in Flash with a few AS3 classes. As I noted there, such a triangulated irregular network (TIN) allows us to interpolate isolines — lines of constant value (aka isarithms, commonly called contours).
So, given a field of points [...]
