Nine Inch Nails get geo-spatial in stat attack

Nine Inch Nails have released the download statistics for recent free album ‘The Slip’ in an interesting and innovative use of geo-tagging technology.
If you’re interested in finding out a little more about the 1.4 million fans who downloaded the album, the band has made available a Google Earth KML file that maps exact download numbers according to geographic region. The map only represents individual downloads that went directly through the band’s site. To open the file you need Google Earth to be installed on your computer.
Last month saw Trent Reznor offer another free download: A ‘Tour Sampler’ featuring songs from bands performing on the upcoming Nine Inch Nails tour. Included are tracks from A Place To Bury Strangers, Does It Offend You, Yeah?, Crystal Castles, Deerhunter, and Nine Inch Nails. Once again, 100% free, high quality MP3s, DRM-free.
