Can anyone point me in the right direction of the cartogram plugin please? I've had a look on the net but can't find what I'm looking for.

    How did you look on the Net? The first hit in Googling "QGIS Cartogram" takes me to @Underdark's blog and the second sentence locates the plugin! – whuber Jul 19 '12 at 14:42

At the bottom of Carson Farmer's plugin repository page

Carsen Farmer recently blogged that he took down his ftools page, with an explanation why. This answer originally linked to that page. His blog entry notes that the Cartogram plugin has not yet been integrated/ported into QGIS 2.0, so he offers a link to the Cartogram code on his site and on github.


The plugin is now in the official QGIS plugin repo: https://plugins.qgis.org/plugins/cartogram/ , as well as on Github: https://github.com/informeren/qgis-cartogram

  • Carson Fermer's page only uses a point file, isn't described as using a polygon file – ndthl Aug 3 '12 at 2:16
  • Thats just an error in the description. See Underdarks blogpost to view how it works with polygons. – AndreJ Aug 3 '12 at 5:33
