Because it helps handle attribute data, it's a nice complement to geo work.
What we're going to cover today:
DEMO VIDEO: Make intensity maps like in the Circle of Blue Waternews and embed them in Blogger
Make a simple, informative Google Earth or Maps KML about Africa's heads of government
Make a Map of thousands of locations that updates real-time in Google Earth
Invite your community to help improve your data set. In our example, identify a correction to the Kenya Health Facility layer, and propose it.
DEMO VIDEO: Upcoming feature: KML import, polylines, polygons
Hands-On: with your own data, try out Google Fusion Tables.
