First attempt: failure. But there's an attempt...

Days ago we talked about Rocky Mountain News daring to use a A1 big graphic as the only illustration. Today, Diario de Burgos (Spain) tried something like that with this A1. I agree with Juan Antonio Giner in one point: I don't understand it at all. It is supposed to be a map showing the inmigrants procedence. But there's a big problem: countries are drawn with people icons, and it shows an idea, that the number of icons in the country show the nuber of inmigrants from there. But it is not that way. I love his kind of maps (or charts) that shows country sizes on statistical ways to give data. That's could be a good opportunity for that.
But, it's always good attempting new things. This one was a failure, but it's a step. We need more steps.
