Was looking at @JohnMuyskens' PA redistricting thing: beta.observablehq.com/@jmuyske and was wondering if there was a good way to visually compare all the different maps as a group - which areas tended to be treated as borders vs. kept together in the same district. I tried coloring wedges of a hexgrid based on how often a hex was in a different district than its neighbor:

Curious what y'all think about this approaching of highlighting the incremental change in each step of a stacked area by using a different shade. I think it's valuable to highlight in this case, but I'm concerned that people will interpret the darker shades as separate data series instead. Any suggestions for alternatives?vis.social/media/IVy964ktBs0PF
