Publishing a Google Fusion Table Map

The assignment in class was to create a map using the Restaurant score data attached and the publish a blog post about your map.

Here are the very basic steps we talked about in class:

  • Start with a data set with addresses or better yet latitude and longitude.
  • Upload as Fusion Table to Google Drive (under Create > More > Fusion Table)
  • Fill out metadata (or do it later)
  • Check column information (Edit > Change columns)
  • Edit Info Window (Under Map tab)
  • Edit Map Styles (Under Map tab)
  • Share and embed or link to from your personal blog or portfolio. (If you don't have one, it's time to create one!
We've found that Wordpress doesn't take the iframe embed code. Students have taken screenshots of their maps and used that in their posts, and then linked to the published map.
