The Economist's Arab Spring Map and Chart Collection

The Economist has made an embeddable widget which shows all their maps and charts that have went along with their Arab Spring (Arab protests, Arab revolutions) articles.  The maps and charts start off with the fall of Tunisia's Ben Ali in January and continue onto a late May map of Libyan Republic held towns in western Libya.  A few of the maps are dudes but overall I like the collection.  Of special interest is a chart showing the increase in social spending Arab leaders are doing in order to avoid unrest.  There is a link on the widget which allows on to read the related article.
