Visualizing Interest in Food

by Joshua New
Food trends

Google News Lab and data visualization designer Moritz Stefaner have created a data visualization tool called “Rhythm of Food” that analyzes Google search trends for different food items to reveal how different foods rise and fall in popularity. The visualizations plot search volume on a monthly basis dating back to 2006 and can illustrate different trends in food popularity, such as how searches for “watermelon” spike in summer months, or how medical research published in March 2007 revealing that grapefruit juice could interfere with some medications caused a dramatic increase in searches for that month.

Take a look.
