The code I used to animate the geographic map of Europe to a square tile map in The Eurosearch Song Contest. It uses the great geo2rect by Sebastian Meier.
This map is basically a clone of one of Sebastian’s examples. I created the geojson from Natural Earth data, selected the countries I needed (the Eurovision participants) in QGIS and simplified the geometries with mapshaper. Laying out the tile grid was a nice puzzle (yes, looking at you, Balkans).
You can read the whole making-of of the Eurosearch Song Contest on my site.
