Website Statistics in Google Earth

Jacob Cord wrote a very nice little converter which takes a tab-text file, exported out of your Google Analytics Geo Map Report and converts it to a KML file which you can import into Google Earth.

The output of the original script didn't look all that exciting, so i modified it a little to produce some awesome visualisation of website traffic.

The longer the lines, the more pageviews are represented. If the pageviews are above a set limit, the lines are drawn in red instead of yellow.

Now isn't that an entirely different approach to website statistics visualisation? I'll soon follow up with a Mac OS X PPC binary of the converter and instructions.
