Mapping with Google Fusion Tables Earlier this year I created a lab assignment for Sally Hermansen’s Advanced Cartography course at the University of British Columbia. The purpose of this lab was to introduce students to Google Maps and managing data in Google Fusion Tables. I’m posting it here in case anyone else finds it useful. I’d also like to thank Sally’s TA Sam Walker for his help testing this assignment. Geographical Biogeosciences 472 Advanced Cartography Lab 2: Google Maps The objective of the lab is to create an interactive, web-based map that would be suitable for inclusion on the web edition of a major newspaper or in a blog post by an advocacy organization. In this lab you will use a variety of free mapping tools built on Google Maps. The point layer you create will be clickable, using pop-up boxes to provide the map reader with additional information such as statistical information, photographs, or links to web pages. Part 1: Getting Started 1.1: Overview of web mapping 1.2: Setup Part 2: Fusion Tables

Make a table accessible - Fusion Tables Help By default, new tables are private, requiring other people to be invited with specific permissions and sign in before viewing or editing the data. Visualizations embedded in other websites and Google Earth network links cannot authenticate to Fusion Tables when they call for the data, so the table must not require sign-in for these features to work. There is one exception: Tables created by importing a web table from the search results page of Google Tables are public by default. To remove the sign-in requirement for viewers: Click the Share button. Private If you leave your table as Private, only the people you have specifically invited will have access to your table. Public When an exportable table is set as Public, signing in is not required to view your table and visualizations embedded elsewhere can draw from your data table instantly. "Anyone with the link" When an exportable table is set as "Anyone with the link," access is provided to parties who know the URL.

Fusion Tables Layer (Experimental)  |  Google Maps Javascript API  |  Google Developers Note: The Fusion Tables layer is Experimental. The Fusion Tables Layer renders data contained in Google Fusion Tables. Overview The Google Maps API allows you to render data contained in Google Fusion Tables as a layer on a map using the FusionTablesLayer object. A Google Fusion Table is a database table where each row contains data about a particular feature; for geographic data, each row within a Google Fusion Table additionally contains location data, holding a feature’s positional information. A sample Fusion Table, showing geographic data, is shown below: Limits You can use the Maps API to add up to five Fusion Tables layers to a map, one of which can be styled with up to five styling rules. In addition: Only the first 100,000 rows of data in a table are mapped or included in query results.Queries with spatial predicates only return data from within this first 100,000 rows. Fusion Table Setup Fusion Tables are tables of data that provide built-in geographic data support.

Fusion Tables API Important: Fusion Tables API v1.0 restricts the maximum response size to 10 MB. We encourage you to migrate to the Google Fusion Tables API v2.0, which provides media download for large payloads. Get started There are lots of ways to get started with Fusion Tables. Create, update, and delete Manage your tables and table data with the Fusion Tables API. Issue queries Use SQL-like queries to manage rows of data, obtain specific data from a table, or perform a spatial search. Google Maps JavaScript API Data that can be mapped in Fusion Tables can also be a layer on a Google Map. Google Charts Fusion Tables is a data source for Google Chart Tools.

Fusion Tables Layer in Google Maps API - Fusion Tables Help Maps in Fusion Tables are also available as Fusion Tables Layers in the Google Maps API. Using JavaScript to create the map directly in the webpage instead of an iframe means more flexibility to customize the map: Layer several maps together Change the base map color and details Include a search box or pull-down menu to change the mapped data Turn off info windows Use .css on the content of map info windows Cut-n-paste coders can get started by following the instructions below. Intermediate coders can find code examples for additional tricks such as logically constructing map info window content or displaying locations with custom icons. 1. Both the Fusion Tables web application and the Fusion Tables Layer wizard generate the complete HTML and JavaScript code for displaying the map on a webpage, without any programming. For the map to appear on a website, the table must be public or unlisted. Publish a map tab To see the code for the map tab you are currently looking at: 2. 3. Edit map state

Google Geo Developers Blog: Search your geo data using spatial queries from Fusion Tables! I’m Kathryn Hurley, a Developer Programs Engineer for Fusion Tables, and I have to say, I really dig Fusion Tables. The power it gives you to visualize your data is amazing! Plus, the team is working hard to add new features that give even more power to you, the developer. It is my pleasure to announce that Fusion Tables now offers spatial queries! To demonstrate some of the new syntax, let’s go through a potential use case of spatial queries: creating a store locator map. Now let’s say we want to display all the restaurants that fall within a bounding box. SELECT * FROM 297050 WHERE ST_INTERSECTS(Address, RECTANGLE(LATLNG(37.2, -122.3), LATLNG(37.6, -121.9))) The map to the left shows this query in action using the FusionTablesLayer. This is the code for the FusionTablesLayer: We can also find the 10 features closest to a particular coordinate, such as the latitude, longitude coordinate of your house or a major city center.

Google Geo Developers Blog Change placemark icon - Fusion Tables Help By default, point locations are shown on the map with a small red dot icon. Here's how to change it. 1. In the New look: Click on the map tab you want to change. In Classic: Select "Visualize > Map". 2. There are three ways to apply a map style that specifies icons. Change icon for all points. The simplest change is to replace the small red dot with another icon for all points shown on the map. Click "Fixed" if needed. There are ten icons available: Apply an icon based on data. You can define classes or buckets, and apply a marker icon to a point depending on which bucket it falls into. Click the "Buckets" tab at the top. Specify an icon for each location. You can specify the icon to be used to display each point by icon name. Click "Column." There are approximately 200 recognized icon names, all shown on the map below. Tip: When the provided icon name is missing or not recognized, that point displays the default small red dot icon. Open this in its own window Try it yourself! Click "Save".
