African Internet Connectivity Google Maps Mashup

I don't mention many Google Maps mashups from the continent of Africa so this one gets its own post. Genesmith.org has created a Google Map which mashes up data from Internet World Stats covering Internet connectivity by African country. The purpose of the tool is to show how connected a country is based on total population, number of Internet users, 2005 growth in user-base, and overall population. Once again, the Google Maps API has been used to take data that is sitting in a large text table and creates a visual, geo interface by which to interpret the data.
