Have you got data in different forms that you want to compare directly? Do you want to show your data on a map to improve your research message?

This workshop is an introduction to data visualisation techniques using hands-on activities in Google Fusion Tables. The course is ideal for participants who work with large data sets and want to convey their research outcomes clearly and persuasively in a visual manner. By merging geospatial data and crime statistics to create a heat map, participants will gain skills in visualisation that they can apply to their research.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Import data into Google Fusion Tables
  • Merge multiple data sets in Fusion Tables
  • Create interactive heatmaps on a Google Map
  • Vary the way the visualisation is presented in Fusion Tables


Google Fusion Tables is an experimental Google Drive app. A personal Gmail account is required to participate in this course. Institutional accounts, such as those at universities, will not work.
