H-R Diagram of radio interferometers (total citations 2000-2010 vs abs. fame)
Here is another HR Diagram plot - restricted to radio interferometers and plotting total citations (2000-2010) vs abs. fame - see previous posts on how this is constructed and refer also to @astronomyblog AAS poster. The results show that the VLBA is second only to the VLA in terms of its overall scientific productivity - it comes in at the same level as IRAM (but note this is corrupted by PV single dish). Note that "VLBI" is already contaminated by some VLBA-only results. The GBT is also plotted for reference.
