Gapminder for Venice?

Something else we're playing with is gapminder, a truly outstanding application that allows the visualization of complex datasets in at least 5 dimensions (using X, Y, color and size of dots, plus time). This would be a great way to release our Venetian time-series datasets, especially those concerning socio-economics, demographics and urban change. Since Google bought the company, it has released a gadget that will let users add dynamic graphics to their mashups or igoogle pages. We'll be testing this really soon, so stay tuned!
