An example of Tufte’s Information is the Interface

"OSCity (Open Source City) brings the Dutch spatial planning together with the newest information technology. By directly searching, visualizing and combining spatial data everybody is invited - from citizen, entrepreneur, designer and civil servant - to gain insight into everything that is spatial.

With this OSCity tries to create broad perspectives which offer a basis for an innovative spatial planning that can tackle problems of social cohesion, sustainability and generates value for the public good.”

Pizza and Geography

Check out this bit of pizza deliciousness. Great aggregated data. I wonder though about within-region comparisons. Western NY state is a great place for a slice, especially Buffalo, because a pizza can be consumed that was made by a local or so-called ‘mom and pop’ shop; as opposed to a chain. Great map though.
