After seeing Doug McCune’s playful visualization of public data, If San Fracisco Crime were Elevation I was tempted to do the same for a Norwegian data set.
After casting about for something to make heat maps out of I came upon KOSTRA, the official statistics from Norwegian municipalities. While not exactly as spectacular as prostitution in the Tenderloin, Norwegian road spending per capita is a political hot potato (or at least, a semi-lukewarm potato). Here follows a few renders from last night. Like Doug I have to emphasize that this is close to useless as strict infoviz, but it does make for nice eye candy.
