If there is one thing Google is good at, it’s finding new and exciting ways to use data. We can’t even begin to imagine what Google is working on behind closed doors at any given time, but every once in a while it releases a nifty new tool that gives the general public new ways to look at the mountains of data that pass through Google’s network every millisecond.

The tool can show global searches or regional data in any one of eleven different regions, and it is free to use on Google’s Trends site.
