A Final Post About the Beijing Olympics
Last Olympics post for a while, I promise. This page is a Google Maps mashup that plots all medallists on their hometowns. It’s considerably cruder than the Earthgamz plugin (see previous entry), which also covers all athletes, but is more broadly functional. Via Google Maps Mania.
At the other end of the spectrum, I whipped up some very basic heat maps, using Google Spreadsheets’s map widget, showing the number of Olympic last-place finishers per country in this summing-up post on DFL.
