It’s no secret that LinkedIn has been actively churning out products that allow users to leverage the massive amount of data published from the social network’s 90 million professionals. Recently, LinkedIn launched the ability to create visual maps of your connections. And today, the network is allowing users to take a deeper dive into “skills” data on the platform.

LinkedIn Skills allows users to search the network for a particular skill, and access “key people” within a particular skill community. You can also see data an top locations, companies, jobs, and groups related to a particular skill. And LinkedIn will show you similar skills to your search, will compare growth in professionals with these skills, and indicate which skills are trending on the network.

LinkedIn has already tracked a number of skillsets on the network, including iPhone, Hadoop, Java, and Android.
