Hello, 11Ders! Glad to be here and thanks to Laura for the invite. I have been getting into geographic analyses lately, which is to say I frequently bang my head against the software and read some cartoblogs. A recent one moved my origins around: apparently, now I was born in St. Croix, grew up in Green Bay, and ended up in Jersey?
I love this creative cartography stuff. From Fakeisthenewreal, via Cartophiliac, the above map redraws states as an analogy to congressional districts with their equal population by law. Additionally, they seem to try to save the "communities of interest" argument. I don't agree that "it's obvious that reforms are needed" for the good ol' EC, but with the fun naming you have one clever map. Are you hypothetically displaced? Do you like your new hypothetical state's name, or would you propose another?
