I am very new to this. I would like to make a cartogram and a cloropleth map of the same data (number of awards per country for all countries). Forums I have read make me think that mapresso is the best bet for doing this but I am lacking the tech knowledge to run the program. Double clicking on it doesn't work, the file is a java applet and I think needs to be built into a webpage? No idea how to do this. Does anyone have mapresso experience and could help me with the initial set up?

What operating system are you on? Have you downloaded and set up a recent java runtime engine (JRE)?

You might want to look into ScapeToad as well.

If you have ArcGIS - there is a very good cartogram ArcToolbox script.
