I am quite new to GIS and qGIS especially.

I would like to install cfarmers cartogram plugin. From what I understand, this has to be done manually - so I 've followed the instructions from RobinLoveLace (see link below).

Where has the cartogram plugin for QGIS gone?

When I try to click the icon for the Cartogram Creator, I get an error message (see below).

Any tips on how to get it to work?

An error has occured while executing Python code:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:/PROGRA~2/QGISCH~1/apps/qgis/./python/plugins\cartogram\plugin.py", line 136, in run d = doCartogram.Dialog(self.iface) File "C:/PROGRA~2/QGISCH~1/apps/qgis/./python/plugins\cartogram\doCartogram.py", line 61, in init for name, layer in layermap.iteritems(): File "C:/PROGRA~2/QGISCH~1/apps/qgis/./python/plugins\cartogram\doCartogram.py", line 61, in init for name, layer in layermap.iteritems(): File "C:\PROGRA~2\QGISCH~1\apps\Python27\lib\bdb.py", line 49, in trace_dispatch return self.dispatch_line(frame) File "C:\PROGRA~2\QGISCH~1\apps\Python27\lib\bdb.py", line 68, in dispatch_line if self.quitting: raise BdbQuit BdbQuit

The plugin for Cartogram Creator for qGIS is downloaded from here: https://github.com/cfarmer/cartogram-plugin/tree/master

The Cartogram plugin is not compatible with QGIS 2.x since it is not being maintained anymore. The only way to get it work is to get a developer to update it.
