[open-visualisation] Cultural heritage digitisation data for visualisations

Dear all,

I recently got access to some very comprehensive data from the EU funded
ENUMERATE project. They asked almost two thousand cultural institutions in
Europe how much of their content is actually digitised and how much should
still be. Unfortunately, they had to anonymise the names of the
institutions but there still is lots of info you can get out of this. I
quickly made for example this chart with Many Eyes that shows that 50% of
all institutions have 0-10% of their collection digitised.

Now, there is a lot of stuff wrong with this chart but it shows the
possibilities. I was wondering if anybody would be interested in working to
create a couple of better ones. Please let me know.

The dataset can be found here:

All the best,
