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. 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. For that course I also created a short QuantumGIS tutorial, which I will post separately: A Very Short Introduction to QGIS. Geographical Biogeosciences 472 Advanced Cartography Lab 2: Google Maps
Fusion Tables Layer (Experimental) Note: The Fusion Tables layer is Experimental. The Fusion Tables Layer renders data contained in Google Fusion Tables. Overview GIS Data Formats, Design and Quality - University of California, Davis About this course: In this course, the second in the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Specialization, you will go in-depth with common data types (such as raster and vector data), structures, quality and storage during four week-long modules: Week 1: Learn about data models and formats, including a full understanding of vector data and raster concepts. You will also learn about the implications of a data’s scale and how to load layers from web services. Week 2: Create a vector data model by using vector attribute tables, writing query strings, defining queries, and adding and calculating fields. You'll also learn how to create new data through the process of digitizing and you'll use the built-in Editor tools in ArcGIS. Week 3: Learn about common data storage mechanisms within GIS, including geodatabases and shapefiles. Learn how to choose between them for your projects and how to optimize them for speed and size.
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. Dive into sample code, follow a tutorial, or join our community.
Create: a map - Fusion Tables Help Use Fusion Tables' new look with this tutorial This 2-3 minute tutorial steps you through uploading data to generate a map with placemarks in the new version of Fusion Tables. For this tutorial, a sample dataset is provided containing records of insects collected in Costa Rica by ecologists. Each location is recorded with a latitude and longitude point. Import the sample dataset Download this sample insect dataset. Stats, Maps n Pix: The Global Human Settlement Layer: an amazing new global population dataset At the recent Habitat III conference on housing and sustainable development in Quito, Ecuador (17-20 October 2016) the European Commission launched a new Global Human Settlement (GHS) dataset. That's what this post is about. Before that, here are some basic data details - Landsat data from 1975, 1990, 2000 and 2014 were processed and analysed in order to produce three different GHS products: one on population (GHS-POP), one on built-up areas (GHS-BUILT) and one city model dataset (GHS-SMOD). But this is already getting too technical, so let's look at some maps - I've just created a few in 3D for fun in order to give you an idea of what the population dataset looks like. Each image below uses the 250 metre resolution one (there is also a 1km cell version for population). The London example is pretty interesting and I think provides a nice overview of settlement patterns both in terms of distribution and density.
