fusion tables UK Crop Circles and US debt

08/30/2012

I’ve been playing with Googles Fusion Tables, specifically the map function, & for a free service it’s quite impressive.

Data can be uploaded in several ways, via traditional file types (txt, csv, xls), linked to from Google Docs, or simply pasted into a fusion table.

Here’re a couple of examples that I’ve put together:

a map of crop circles in the UK from 2009

thanks again to The Guardian

Sad as it may sound I enjoyed putting these together, I’m to make it my mission to find & mash data 🙂
