If Norwegian Road Spending was Elevation

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.

Nice! Can you reveal which datasets you used (link)? Is it road spending per capita for 2009?

That’s the one. Like I mentioned above I find this most interesting for its novelty and not perhaps for the exactitude of represemtation. That being said, if you have a dataset you think would be interesting to see dressed up like this just post a link here and I’ll se what I can do.
