I’ve been a long-time admirer of the work of David McCandless (http://www.informationisbeautiful.net/), and I finally had the chance to build one of his infographics in Flash. The project displays projected CO2 emissions from car journeys on Memorial Day across America. You can choose between 3 region groupings and 3 fuel types. The numbers involved are mind-boggling!

Looks great Daniel!
I like that you’ve combined number crunching with some nice subtle Flash effects such as the balloons waving around a bit.
