Nice, although the color scheme is pretty unforgiving. I was perplexed by this until I figured out that there was a watermark distoring much of Europe.

I made a interactive map (with outlook; eg:- US Rating is AAA, but Outlook is Negative) of all three: Moody’s, S&P and Fitch credit rating

It’s not a cartogram (no area distortion based on a variable). Just a map.
