InMaps from LinkedIn Labs (via Lifehacker) is a really interesting data visualization tool. Upon sign up, the engine does it’s magic and then asks the user to determine the relevance of each color pool. I spent a few minutes on one and posted the example below. The most interesting aspect of this map was being able to click on various dots and revealing how people within my network are connected to each other. It’s the first time I’ve seen a visualization that makes a graphical representation of my 2nd degree network.
