I just discovered Fusion Tables. There is life beyond the amazing Jeff’s Amazon Ec2/s3 after all!
Gather, visualize and share data online
- Visualize and publish your data as maps, timelines and charts
- Host your data tables online
- Combine data from multiple people
Google Fusion Tables is a modern data management and publishing web application that makes it easy
to host, manage, collaborate on, visualize, and publish data tables online.
What can I do with Google Fusion Tables?
Import your own data
Upload data tables from spreadsheets or CSV files, even KML. Developers can use the Fusion Tables API to insert, update, delete and query data programmatically. You can export your data as CSV or KML too.
Visualize it instantly
See the data on a map or as a chart immediately. Use filters for more selective visualizations.
Publish your visualization on other web properties
Now that you’ve got that nice map or chart of your data, you can embed it in a web page or blog post. Or send a link by email or IM. It will always display the latest data values from your table and helps you communicate your story more easily.
