I made this in R using the rayshader package (code here). Data from the Kontur Population Dataset. This dataset estimates worldwide population in 400m hexagonal geometries using a combination of "GHSL, Facebook, Microsoft Buildings, Copernicus Global Land Service Land Cover, Land Information New Zealand, and OpenStreetMap data." The map is presented at an angle to better illustrate heights.

I also made a live-coding tutorial for how I make these maps, find the video here.

I'm more active posting this kind of stuff on Twitter, follow me there if you're interested (@MrPecners).

I've also posted other states on their respective subs, see my other maps on my profile: u/Pecners.
