Gapminder developed the Trendalyzer software; which converts boring numbers into enjoyable; animated and interactive graphics‚Äďthus unveiling the beauty of statistical time series.
In March 2006; Google acquired Trendalyzer from Gapminder Foundation and the team of developers working for Gapminder joined Google in California in April 2007. Since the Trendalyzer development was taken over by Google; the Gapminder Foundation maintain the same aim and uses Trendalyzer and its resources to produce videos and web services showing major global development trends with animated statistics.
The time series are made freely available in the web service called Gapminder World (www.gapminder.org/world/).
Gapminder World enables the end users to further explore the underlying statistics in Trendalyzer graphics.
