Gapminder World joins the Google stable

It appears that Google has acquired Gapminder according to some reports. It provides an excellent rendering/charting tool to display a pre-canned set of data combinations.

Each of the dimension may be changed and hence many relationships examined. In the picture I am displaying population size via the blob size, and charting internet adoption v income per capita. What isn't displayed is that you can play this chart through a timeline of years to see how the situation has changed.

I'm guessing that at some point Google will make it possible to load one's own data sets up to the tool, in similar fashion to google spreadsheets etc. That will be awesome.
