Thematic/contextual information

Voronoi cells are a way of visualising data, assigning value to an area that can be manipulated as the data changes. The process is used in geographic mappings, plotting spread of disease, and density distributions in materials, to name a few of its uses. Could I utilise this system to generate a pattern that wrapped around a cell like shape that didn’t leave gaps, or create overlaps in the pattern.
