BBC News just released an interesting treemap visualization [bbc.co.uk] of the Top 500 Supercomputing List, which contains valuable statistics on high-performance computers such as the number of systems installed, the location of the various supercomputers within the high-performance computing community and the applications for which a computer system is being used.

The slightly interactive treemap infographic allows users to explore the list by the speed of each machine, the operating systems used, what it is used for, the country where it is based, the maker of the silicon chips used to build the machine, and the manufacturer of the super computer.

Anyone knows what color intensity means in this case for TreeMaps? I mean in the "by application" section.
I like the idea of visualizing this data, and the TreeMap seems adequate, but I think it lacks interactivity. I just posted yesterday about my own implementation of Animated TreeMaps (BSD) http://blog.thejit.org/2010/05/30/news-from-the-javascript-infovis-toolkit-2-0-world/. They could have used that instead.
