CARTOGRAMS Defining Cartograms: 1) A small diagram, on the face of a map, showing quantitative  information.  1)  An abstracted and simplified map the base of which is not true to  scale.  Types of Cartograms A cartogram is a type of graphic that depicts attributes of geographic objects as the object's area. Because a cartogram does not depict geographic space, but rather changes the size of objects depending on a certain attribute, a cartogram is not a true map. Cartograms vary on their degree in which geographic space is changed; some appear very similar to a map, however some look nothing like a map at all. Key Terms: Geographic Object : Some thing that exists in geographic space, like a country, a city, a river or a house. Attribute : Some characteristic of a geographic object; such as a country's population, its literacy rate, or Gross National Product.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
