Why was it necessary to add a rectangle to the half?
The map visually shows the accumulation of points closer to the equator and their dispersion to the poles.
This accumulation is due to using a web-Mercator — a calculated value for displaying countries on a flat map (a cylindrical projection of the earth on the map).
Is it possible to distribute our hexagons more evenly? I had such a question when the map was ready. The answer was found in the article by Sarah Battersby.
So, to correct the location, we will go the following way
described in the article.
Convert the coordinates of the web-Mercator to match the projection of the Tableau base map.
