Google has concluded its massive year-end Zeitgeist roundup, which catalogued the most-searched items of 2012, with an interactive map showing 2013 New Year's resolutions of people around the world.

Combining the function of Google Maps and Google Translates, the map invites you to submit your own resolution as a well as a chance to be inspired by the resolutions of others.

The map is divided by categories such as Love, Health, Career, Finance, Family, Education, Do Good, and Other, and offers you a glimpse of what other people intend to make of 2013.

One person in Brazil, for example, wants to "find a woman for dating", while another in Japan wants to "work three times faster."

To join the list of users adding their resolutions, click the button at the bottom of the screen, enter the resolution (along with your postal codes and country name), select a category such as love, health or career, then click submit. The map allows you to submit your resolution in your native language, and Google does the translation into English.

It can take 24 to 48 hours for the resolution to appear, so be patient.

The Google Zeitgeist page also contains a 2 minutes 46 seconds video showing clips of all the biggest events that happened in 2012 as well as the most searched on entries in Google. The list includes the video for "Gangnum style", dead singer Whitney Houston, NBA sensation Jeremy Lin, the hit movie Hunger Games, and Apple's iPad 3.
