Cellular Nations 11   Cellular Nations 2  
    Cellular Nations is a program that maps global economic information to a dynamic visual system. There are two studies on representation of two hundred and thirty-two world nations with visual cells. Economic information - GDP, GDP growth rate, inflation rate - is mapped to the geometry and speed of the circles. Military power is simulated by the physical power relationship between the cells.
