Matt at the Merc reports about the latest goings on at info visualization tool Groxis in the article: Groxis moves up in the world. You’ll read about the move to a new office along with recently “snagging” more than $12 million in venture cap funding.
I used Groxis for several weeks year and didn’t find it all that useful but that could just be me and the way I search. Several people have told me that they love the product. I think I’m going to take another look.
If you would like to check some other info visualization tools available on the web, here’s a list of a few tools that are available:
+ Hoover’s via anacubis
Visualize some of the business data that Hoover’s makes available for free.
+ SmartMoney’s Map of the Market
A very cool and useful way of looking at stock market data. Access to some maps is free while others are fee-based.
+ Amazon, Google, and LiveJournal visualization tools from TouchGraph
+ Google News Map (Note: Osinga works for Google’s engineering team, and this is part of his blog)
+ Client software: Personal Brain
