Last week I watched a most amazing thirty-six minute video by Fora TV in which the Swedish database programmer described information available on Google. Fascinating speech. Boggling and mind stretching.
'Data visualizations for a changing world:
The Google Public Data Explorer makes large datasets easy to explore, visualize and communicate. As the charts and maps animate over time, the changes in the world become easier to understand. You don't have to be a data expert to navigate between different views, make your own comparisons, and share your findings.' - Google
Drill down by category in this database to find answers to questions you might not have considered. The information is readily available if you choose to investigate the why and wherefore of facts relative to each category. Play around with drop down dialog boxes to compare changing graphs/lines by years, countries and other parameters.
I spent quite some time looking at the database and plan to return as soon as other questions arise. I question, though, that it will answer every one. What is your question that might be answered by the Google Data Explorer?
