Google Labs launches Fusion Tables

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

page21Google Fusion Tables, a service from Google Labs, is an exciting new development that offers the potential to unlock facts and scientific data that has previously been in databases and spreadsheets which have not been shared easily. Fusion Tables also allows the management of large quantities of  data, and lets users generate design elements and collaborate online.

Fusion Tables was developed by Google engineers who were using sample research data from the Pacific Institute and Circle of Blue, an organization that does front-line reporting on water issues, on the global freshwater crisis. The idea is to build an ecosystem on the Web, according to Alon Halevy, senior Google engineer who led the development team for Fusion Tables.

Users can merge and share data in real time with other contributors whereever they work. They can upload and manage huge databases of information, filter and aggregate relevant data sets without having to be concerned about file formats.

What’s more, data that is stored in Google Docs’ spreadsheets can be thematically mapped and geocoded using Fusion Tables. 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.
