Google’s crowdsourcing apparatus was created to make “large datasets easy to explore, visualize, and communicate” with for the general public. Like Google Correlate, users can upload or develop new data sets to build dynamic data charts that automatically update with the latest info. Over 13 databases are available including the U.S. Center for Disease Control, California Department of Education, World Bank, and more. As an incredible tool that helps compile large statistics and public information, this would be a huge loss for students and journalists.
