Vancouver 2010 medal count

The Winter Olympics in Vancouver yielded some great visualizations, with the New York Times work being amongst the top ones. They are showing off a map of the Winter Olympic Medals in the tradition of the Dorling cartograms. They also did a great job on a 3D map of the venues.
For those who want for worldmapper style maps, here is the relief: The worldmapper map of the actual medal count. The following is transformed due to a country’s total number of medals it has won.

A larger version of the map can be viewed by clicking on the image.


Splitting the results in Gold/Silver/Bronze shows that the general trend remains, making the Olympics a quite one-sided competition between the wealthy countries (and China), no matter whether it is the first, second or third rank in the results tables:
