Home Valuation Map Using Google Fusion Tables

Google Fusion Tables is a modern data management and publishing web application that makes it easy to host, manage, collaborate on, visualize, and publish data tables online. Though in beta stage, I liked its potential and wanted to give it a try.

Zillow Real Estate Market Report provides Home value index for major US metro regions. I used it to create a Google Fusion Table. Check it out NOW!.

You can do the following using Google Fusion Tables.

Import your own data

Upload data tables from spreadsheets or CSV files, even KML. 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.

Visualize it instantly

See the data on a map or as a chart immediately. Use filters for more selective visualizations.

Publish your visualization on other web properties

Now that you’ve got that nice map or chart of your data, you can embed it in a web page or blog post. Or send a link by email or IM. It will always display the latest data values from your table and helps you communicate your story more easily.
