Circle packing applied to the population census stats


I experimented circle packing technique as a way to put statistics on a map


This prevents overlapping, although it is not always spatially precise, depending on the scale of study.


The demography stats are integrated as a rosette with 6s petals as quinquennal categories


The scale_exp function was used to determine the petal length, after being ported to R.


Data :

- GéoFLA IGN for the contours,

- 2012 Pop. Census by INSEE for the pop. stats


Made with R for computation & QGIS for design
