Anyone fancy doing this for Tinderbox data?

Assuming the data set isn't overwhelmingly large, is there an OPML feed of the data to which you refer? Without something like OPML, just setting up the data could take an age.

Sorry, I just meant to show a beautiful visualization that could be imitated and to which one could feed any tbx file.

You know, of course, about the treemaps in Tinderbox?

Of course,
and the example above is a nice way to show one's data to the wider public (they can explore it and don't need TBX).

I'm not so sure.  The Barcelona Museum uses a Flash application and there's no indication it is available for free use by third parties. TB treemap views aren't exportable, though the TB demo could be used as a viewer, I guess. That said, if there's a free web-capable treemap visualisation tool, TB can most likely export data in a form such a tool could use.

This has some links to possible tools: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2143810/what-is-the-best-web-based-treemap-vi...

From a quick look most of these tools will require some degree of coding especially Flash, Flex or Java skills.
