statebins: statebins is an alternative to choropleth maps for USA States

statebins is an alternative to choropleth maps for USA States and is based on work by the Washington Post graphics department in their report on "The states most threatened by trade". statebins preserves as much of the geographic placement of the states as possible but has the look and feel of a traditional heatmap. Functions are provided that allow for use of both a binned, discrete scale and continuous scale depending on what is needed for the underlying data.
