omegahat/Rcartogram: Interface to Mark Newman's cartogram software

This is an interface to C code for "fitting" diffusion cartograms to a grid of densities. The resulting grid can be used to transform/interpolate values in the original coordinates. The result of transforming boundaries for regions with different densities is to make the regions in the new coordinates change size to be proportional to the original densities. This is used for drawing maps, for example, of election vote counts, disease incidences, etc. so that different populations/densities are displayed rather than geographical area.
