The 2012 Olympic Games officially ended this Sunday in London. Although I missed most of the games, I was still entertaining myself with some hilarious news, such as Thomas’s re-diving. So much fun. I would remember this for years 🙂

Games ended. Medals won. I’d like to present the medals won by each country in this interesting Olympic Games. I generate a merge plot of GeoMap and Table using the useful googleVis package.

The following is a snapshot. For the original, click here.Note: the original data came from the wikipedia and the flag url from the population dataset in the googleVis package.
