Visualizing interesting world facts with FsLab

In case you missed my recent official FsLab announcement, FsLab is a data-science package for .NET built around F# that makes it easy to get data using type providers, analyze them interactively (with great R integration) and visualize the results. You can find more on on fslab.org, which also has links to some videos and download page with templates and other instructions.

Last time, I mentioned that we are working on integrating FsLab with the XPlot charting library. XPlot is a wonderful F# library built by Taha Hachana that wraps two powerful HTML5 visualization libraries - Google Charts and plot.ly.

I thought I'd see what interesting visualizations I can built with XPlot, so I opened the World Bank type provider to get some data about the world and Euro area, to make the blog post relevant to what is happening in the world today.
