Tile Narrative: Scrollytelling with Grid Maps

Explaining tile grid maps through interactive narratives

While choropleth maps are the go-to method to visualize geographic data, they tend to skew attention towards the bigger states (blocks). Some data stories need equal emphasis for each block (state) and be arranged in a way that is close to the actual map representation. That is where tile grid maps shine. As Danny DeBelius points out, they can be the perfect way to avoid the visual imbalances typical to traditional choropleths.
