This article presents a rough idea of how one might mimic a non-contiguous cartogram using QGIS.
If you have data with disparate values between areas, making an area cartogram is an effective way to map out those values. This article provides a tutorial on how to make area cartogram maps using ArcGIS.

Cartogram maps retain a partially accurate relative location and relative space, but the actual area of the individual polygons features are overrepresented or underrepresented based on the assigned values. Area cartograms […]
