Hex map builder

We like creating hex cartograms so we've created a tool to help you make hex layouts from your own data. You can either read in an existing HexJSON file or start creating your own hex cartogram from a CSV file. The CSV should contain a column with the heading id that uniquely identifies each hex. Other columns will be added as properties of each hex. You can specify the position of the hex using the column headings q and r. A column with the heading n or name will set the displayed name of the hex. You can optionally colour the hexagons by including a column headed colour. Once you have hexagons, move them to your desired positions (click one then click an empty hex to move it there). When you have everything where you want it, save the output. Note that this tool is for creating layouts rather than fully interactive visualisations.
