I've been thinking about the fact that an n×n square grid has as many cells as a triangular lattice with n triangles on each side.
Is there a nice continuous bijection between them? When n is odd, you can at least keep one line of symmetry throughout.

@christianp Use the decomposition of n² into 1+3+5+..., which appears naturally in both lattices starting from a vertex.
