Hi, I'm Gregor, welcome to my blog where I mostly write about data visualization, cartography, colors, data journalism and some of my open source software projects.

Map Visualization Using OpenFlashMaps


If you know Edward Tufte’s wonderful book The Visual Display of Quantitative Information you might already know the following visualization. The cool new thing is that it’s rendered in Flash using OpenFlashMaps - a new open source map visualization framework that I’m currently working on. The data is taken from U.S. Census Bureau and shows the percentage of people living in poverty in 2006.
