More exchange rate kml files

Shortly after i post this my little server should be spitting out some currency maps for the other major world currencies. Data is still shown as the rate of change over the last 48 hours.

Australian Dollar (AUD)
British Pound (GBP)
Canadian Dollar (CAD)
Euro (EUR)
Hong Kong Dollar (HKD)
Japanese Yen (JPY)
Swiss Franc (CHF)
US Dollar (USD)

From the 4th June i'll switch the currency maps to reflect a 30 day change which should be pretty useful for planning holidays. If you find this data useful or would like something specific drop me a line and i'll see what i can do.

Dollar exchange rate map for Google Earth

I'm pleased to publish my dollar exchange map for Google Earth. Each country is colour coded to how it's performed against the dollar over the last 48 hours. So if the country is red in colour then it's currency has dropped against the dollar and if green then they're doing alright.

Click here for the KML file.

I'll be switching to a 30 day view rather than a 48 hour period once enough data has been sufficiently captured. I'm accepting requests for private services if anyone would like access to the data in a different format than provided.

The data comes from some of the regualr exchange rate sites and it was a case of a using a mixture to identify all the currencies used in the world. Before now i had no idea you could use the Euro in South America and off the coast of Canada. It's been bit of a lesson in geography 101 tbh.

Anyway hope you enjoy.
