Biography

Anna Rosling Ronnlund is a co-founder in 2005, along with Hans Rosling and Ola Rosling of the Gapminder Foundation. Gapminder is a non-profit venture - a modern 'museum' on the Internet - promoting sustainable global development and achievement of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.

The initial activity was to pursue the development of the Trendalyzer software. Trendalyzer sought to unveil the beauty of statistical time series by converting boring numbers into enjoyable, animated and interactive graphics. The current version of Trendalyzer is available since March 2006 as Gapminder World, a web-service displaying time series of development statistics for all countries.

In March 2007, Google acquired Trendalyzer from the Gapminder Foundation and the team of developers who formerly worked for Gapminder joined Google in California in April 2007.
