Does it have to do with banks?
# of banks with capitalization over x, or something?
Here's the map broken into its 3 parts, which might make visualization easier.
But something related to the economy?
Does it have anything to do with banks or debt?
total market capitalization?
# banks according to credit rating, say those with a rating of at least A (or AA or AAA)?
You were a lot closer on your first guess.
Map tracks proper nouns, not concepts.
bank loss during the crisis?
or is there three different things ?
Is it linked to GNP?
It contributes towards it, yes.
As a clarification: nocho's first guess was partially correct.
Amount banks contribute to GDP?
GDP isn't being tracked in the map, not directly. What the map is tracking, the things, also count towards GDP (and significantly) but focusing on that angle isn't going to get you the answer.
Something to do with the amount of money loaned?
is it link to housing? and home loan?
When I say partially correct, I mean this is an incomplete answer.
Don't think I can give hints that wouldn't give it away, so I'm opening the floor.
