While diving our favorite dumpster: a clutch of more than 300 vintage 7400-series logic chips! Previously we have scored stepper motors to last a life time in this very dumpster.

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.
