Visualizing Google Analytics data in Google Earth

Introduced six years ago, Google Analytics has quickly become one of the most popular stat-tracking packages around. Many websites, including Google Earth Blog, use it to see which pages on their site are the most popular, how visitors find them, where they come from, etc. It’s quite powerful.
When you have software that can show a list of where the visitors to your site are located, it only makes sense to want to view that data in Google Earth. That’s where ShufflePoint comes in. Along with a variety of dashboards and charts, ShufflePoint allows you to view your data in Google Maps or Google Earth, as seen here:

To try it for yourself, they have a sample KML file for you to try out, as well as the video below to show more about how it works:

If you use Google Analytics and need a way to better visualize your data, ShufflePoint is certainly something to consider. Prices start at $49/month, presumably for a single site. You can learn more about ShufflePoint on the Google Geo Developers Blog.
