SearchDay reports today that anacubis, a company specializing in uncovering criminal connections and terrorist networks, has released a free visualization tool that reveals hidden relationships in Google search results.

“The anacubis Viewer,” SearchDay says, “automatically represents ‘entities,’ such as people, organizations and locations, as small graphic icons. It then shows the relationships between entities as specialized link types — for example, president, business type, address, and so on. With Google results, each web site is represented by a website icon. To get more information about a particular result, right click on its icon and select ‘expand links’ or ‘expand related.’ Expanded results show linkages among and between particular web sites.”

SearchDay says the viewer is available as of today as a free download from the anacubis site, but the site itself says it’s “coming soon.” The site invites you to register to be notified when it is available.

Sounds similar to the visual-relations search tool Kartoo.
