Google Searches Visualized

I'm always on the lookout for cool ways to show information. What we see is often more important than what we know. Since vision is our primary sense and we filter all the rest of our input through vision, it's important to make things like data visually engaging and appealing.

Google took and showed the volume of searches by language and region on a globe. You can spin it with your mouse and zoom in our out with your scroll wheel. It's captivating and fascinating where a spreadsheet with numbers or even a standard bar graph would be boring.

How can you make the information you share more visually engaging?
