- Cartogram is a map depicting attributes of spatial data by distorting two dimensional original maps while preserving their topology. In this paper, a novel cartogram thematic map is adopted to express population growth. The best fitting model is proposed to predict the population of randomly selected modern cities in a provincial area of P R China. The result is visualized with cartograms to produce useful findings for scheming a population planning. It is expected that this method will be an essence for the study of population prediction models.
