Google has recently bought the rights to the Swedish statistics tool Trendalyzer for an undisclosed sum. Trendalyzer was part of the Gapminder Foundation, which became famous by professor Hans Rosling's lively speeches. Trendalyzer presents data in an easily-accessible, graphic format, which seems to have a use potential, as "public organisations around the world invest 20 billion dollars a year producing different kinds of statistics. "

as an alternative tool for "public statistics", will this mean more competition for swivel & Many Eyes?

see also gapminder & Hans Rosling's famous talk at the TED 2006 conference.

I'm Jesse Robbins, part of the Swivel team. We were fortunate to spend a few days with Hans at the OECD World Forum. He's even better in person!

Dear Sir,

Epic Systems together with Beemode ( has developed a Data Visualization software "Trend Compass" almost ready to be released soon. It is an extension to Gapminder which was invented by a Swedish Professor. You can view it :


We are looking to promote that software in various sectors. It is a new concept in viewing statistics and trends in an animated way. It could be used in presentation, analysis,research, decision making, etc.

Here is one link for part of what we did with some Governmental institution:

Here is another link for a project we did with Princeton University on US unemployment :

I hope you could evaluate it and give me your comments. So many ideas are there.g

In a few days you can test the software by uploading data on our website and getting the corresponding Flash charts. This is for a limited number of users.
