Not sure we’ve had a new search engine for a while and this looks interesting for finding data and statistics:

“Zanran helps you to find ‘semi-structured’ data on the web. This is the numerical data that people have presented as graphs and tables and charts. For example, the data could be a graph in a PDF report, or a table in an Excel spreadsheet, or a barchart shown as an image in an HTML page. This huge amount of information can be difficult to find using conventional search engines, which are focused primarily on finding text rather than graphs, tables and bar charts.

Put more simply: Zanran is Google for data.”

Worldmapper: the world as you’ve never seen it before

February 8, 2008

really is the world as you’ve never seen it before but for the self-confessed “innumerate” contributer, “it brings stats to life”.
