Google Lab’s ImageSwirl: Search for Images in a Different Way

google_imageswirl.pngI just recently tried out Google Lab’s ImageSwirl. What’s great about the service is that it relates a photo to other photos in the search in a diagram format (kind of looks like a mind mapping of the image). If you like your data broken down in a visual format, this image search tool is for you. Below is a snapshot of an image search for Princeton University. I clicked on the one images of the snow covered building and based off of similar tags, it gave me images related to that one and others related to Princeton U.
