On Google Public Data, public datasets are brought to life with sleek Google design. The website went online in 2011 after the company purchased the visualisation software Gapminder Trendalyzer from Hans Rosling in 2007. To pick just a few examples, Google processes unemployment data from the OECD, internet speed from Ookla, gender parity in the parliaments of the UNECE, national debt from IMF data, through to population density in various Catalan cities using data from the Statistical Institute of Catalonia. Google has also introduced the special programming language – “Dataset Publishing Language (DSPL)" – specifically for publishing public data.
