Explore new visualizations of by-country and network data
Most, if not all, our current graphs are time plots that have some metric on the y axis, time on the x axis, and possibly some classification encoded as colors. We could explore new visualizations that can help understand our data better. Examples are (1) political world maps with some metric encoded as color, e.g., relation of bridge users to recurring users to visualize requirement for circumvention; there are packages in R (and maybe ggplot2) that can be used to draw world maps. For an example of a web site visualizing Tor relays in maps, see http://www.dianacht.de/torstat/karten.html (cached: http://freehaven.net/~karsten/volatile/dianacht-torstat-karten-2010-06-11.pdf). Another example of a new visualization of Tor data is (2) Circos (http://mkweb.bcgsc.ca/circos/), "a software package for visualizing data [...] in a circular layout, making it ideal for visualizing relationships between objects or positions."
