Nanotechnology timelines and mapviews in Google Experimental
(Nanowerk News) Google Labs has put up a new test bed for their search service called Google Experimental. It gives you an opportunity to try out some of the latest search experiments happening inside Google.
Two of the new features are Timeline and Map Views. With the timeline and map views, Google’s technology extracts key dates and locations from select search results so you can view the information in a different dimension.
One of the six sample queries that Google Lab's has put up for this new feature is nanotechnology. Click here to check it out for yourself. It is very rudimentary of course, but if fully developed and implemented, could prove to be a powerful tool for researching nanotechnology events and companies.
