Onion maps is the new kid on the mapping sites space and they have managed to come up with something unique and cool. Currently the maps are available for few cities across the world (you are seeing hong kong downtown in the image), they give interesting statistics about the city like big-mac index.

And of course there is NY Times Bubble visualization of Olympic Medals that I discussed here.
