Visualization - Google Searches around the globe

Every day, people come to Google Search to ask questions. Through Google, questions become answers, and answers lead to the next set of questions. These people come from around the world and all walks of life, speaking hundreds of different languages, typing in search queries every single day.

Search Globe, a new visual display representing one day of Google searches around the world—visualizing the curiosity of people around the globe. WebGL, a new technology for modern browsers that uses your computer’s hardware to generate fast, 3D graphics. As a result, you need a WebGL-enabled browser, like Google Chrome, to see the Globe.

  1. My students really enjoyed this today. We live in the central part of the United States, so they thought the band of internet darkness running north and south across the central US was interesting. Along with how easy it was to identify countries in Europe and the french language in Canada. International boarders and language all very interesting.
