Google Visualizes Curiousity Around The Globe
Search Globe uses new technology to visualize a day of Google searches from around the planet.
Search Globe is a a new visual display representing one day of Google searches from around the world. It shows the languages of the majority of queries in an area using a spectrum of colors, in effect, visualizing the curiosity levels of different groups. From the Google Blog:
The Search Globe visualizes searches from one day, and shows the language of the majority of queries in an area in different colors. You’ll see a bright landscape of queries across Europe, and parts of Asia for instance, but unfortunately we see many fewer searches from parts of the world lacking Internet access—and often electricity as well—like Africa. We hope that as the Internet continues to become more accessible over time and people continue to ask questions, we’ll see this globe shine brightly everywhere.
