For those who have been following the R-Bloggers this picture should be yesterdays news, but there was an article on the BBC on it, full story HERE. I find it interesting how it was on Drudge Report (www.drudgereport.com) which gets over 1 million hits a day. The article gives the perspective of 5 different points of view, the ‘data visualization’ interpretation is pretty interesting, as are the rest. For those who want to do more than just look at a pretty picture here are some links to help recreate a similar, if not better map.
