 A software developer from Berlin named Ramiro Gomez created a poster-worthy visualization to every pub in Great Britain. By pulling public data from OpenStreetMap and using the Matplotlib Basecamp Toolkil—a gadget allowing you to plot location coordinates on a map—he was able to create a heat map of sorts, showing the most pub-centric spots in the area. While it may be hard to compare the watering holes against each other (each dot is unequivocally the same size and offers no distinguishing information), the data very much correlates to population density.

Gomez is also selling prints of the map on Rebubble if you want to hang it on your wall for all to see (or pack it on your next trip to Great Britain).
