Several Google Labs projects have learned their fate as the company continues to close down Google Labs as part of a larger streamlining effort.
However, Public Data Explorer survives – this tool launched in 2008 and lets users search and compare sets of public data, such as comparing unemployment rates across different states. This has now graduated out of Google Labs. Also, the related Dataset upload for Public Data Explorer tool is also graduating from Google Labs.
