Before we explore distance cartograms, let us first understand what a cartogram is. A cartogram is a combination of a chart/diagram and a map and represents data in a way that makes it easier for the audience to grasp the point. We will not explore the creation of Area Cartograms in PowerPoint since that’s out of the scope of what you would be expected to create within a slide program! However, it’s entirely and easily possible to create a Distance Cartogram using PowerPoint’s native Shapes and the Merge Shape commands.
