Hexagonal Map of Germany

As I really like the idea of using hexagonal maps to avoid bias in interpretation due to pure geographical size of map shapes (see the great work of nathan.weatherly here Hexagonal and Square United States Maps for Graph Builder) I created a hexagon map of the german Bundesländer.

To use it iust copy the attached files into your default JMP-map-folder (Example of Creating a Map in Graph Builder).

To avoid conflicts with JMP's default map shapes I chose to use different map-shape-names: Each name of a Bundesland starts with an additional "H". Thus you will have to use a column like the Mapshape-column in this data table

To produce something like this
