UK Universities publication rates

Choose year
Choose subject
Select the year and subject area, then click "Display" to refresh the map. Each marker on the map represents one UK university. The size is proportional to the number of papers published on the chosen topic in the chosen year.
The publications data originally comes from PubMed, and the map data is from Google Maps. Any errors are probably introduced by my code, so please don't rely on this data!

Things to do:
Improve centering of icons, especially as size changes.
Improve pop-up labels. E.g. add links to homepages? Or to PubMed query?
Add more subjects / years etc.

Things done:
Add a sidebar, listing the top n universities in the current view
Add synonyms (e.g. search PubMed for "UCL or 'university college london'")

Please send comments, questions etc. to me, David Corney.
