Pivot is a very ambitious project from Microsoft Live Labs.With Pivot you can interact with data in a way that is powerful, informative and fun.

Pivot combines related data — anything from pictures, videos and maps to batting averages and financials — into large collections that can then be manipulated, sorted, filtered and examined visually. In this way, the data itself can help shape and inform the way it is presented.

Perhaps Pivot’s most compelling feature is its ability to smoothly and quickly arrange collections according to common characteristics and then zoom in for a closer look, by either clicking on a particular item or filtering the collection to get a subset of information.

Pivot is currently available for anyone who would like to participate.
