    Is the source d3.js code available for this anywhere? I’m really interested in understanding how to make linked visualizations!

    • Hi Chris

      Thanks for your interest. You can of course inspect the source code directly on the website using your browser. Note, however, that I have finished this visualization under time pressure in order to upload it on the day of an important poll.

      Functionality-wise and technically, my cartogram of Wikipedia in Africa over on the OII Internet Geographies blog (http://geography.oii.ox.ac.uk/?page=information-imbalance-africa-on-wikipedia) is very similar to the population cartogram of Switzerland. If you want to dive into the JavaScript code, I’d recommend that one. I had a bit more time for that and thus the source code is tidier.

        Thanks Ralph! That was EXACTLY what I needed, I followed the x_id system you used for linking and it worked out well. Much appreciated :)
