I downloaded the software and looked at the site. My take away is that its good to have the biggest bubble — did I get it right?
Cantab – Bubble is Population size. China is teh big Red bubble and India the big blue one.
Noni – I love these types of graphs. They are great for bringing history alive to kids. They are great tools to show how communism is absolutely horrible for example…

Small red bubbles?
I know! Tinajing, Beijing, and Shanghai have less of income than the US states with similar numbers of people as the US states, and a much lower infant mortality rate. How do they do that with so little income?
I watched the TED presentation that Ezra linked to, first. It was great! I loved watching the nations migrate from one quadrant to another, some of them wobbly in their movement, but most shifting and moving together like rowboats in the evacuation of Dunkirk.
Bookmarked now, I can see I will be using it.
Near the top are such world powers as Iceland, Switzerland, Belgium, etc. LOL. As was pointed out before to those who confuse per capita GDP with power, it is the TOTAL GDP of a nation that creates power, not the percapita income.
Yeah communism has made China such a weakling among nations. Simply terrible. Japan has been run until recently by the same politcal party for decades; in effect a party dictatorship, but easily fooled people think it is a democracy since people there ‘vote’.
I have the pleasure to brief on our Data Visualization software “Trend Compass”.
TC is a new concept in viewing statistics and trends in an animated way by displaying 5 axis (X, Y, Time, Bubble size & Bubble color) instead of just the traditional X and Y axis. It could be used in analysis, research, presentation etc. In the banking sector, we have sold it to Deutsche Bank New York.

I hope you could evaluate it and give me your comments. So many ideas are there.
You can download a trial version. It has a feature to export EXE,PPS,HTML and AVI files. The most impressive is the AVI since you can record Audio/Video for the charts you create.
All the best.
