Google Fusion Tables is an experimental data visualization web application to gather, visualize, and share larger data tables.
In this tutorial we'll work through the various features of Fusion Tables, including importing, sorting and merging data and creating heat maps, by working on a fictional but plausible social science research project.
We’ll start with a research question in mind and use the features of Google Fusion Tables to gain insights and find answers.
The research question relates to NSW crime statistics in relation to NSW Local Government Areas (LGA's) — finding out what we can about where crimes occur, how this has changed over time, the LGA's where most/least crimes occur and the types of crimes that occur in each LGA.

When & Where
Intersect Australia Ltd is the eResearch services organisation in NSW. Intersect is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee, established by its founding members to provide eResearch services and solutions. Intersect’s establishment was funded through a $2.8M grant from the NSW Government (see media release) via the Office for Scientific and Medical Research.
Intersect services the research sector in NSW, including universities and relevant public and private sector agencies, by developing a concentration of eResearch expertise in the State. Intersect works with the existing technical capabilities of its members and partners to identify, develop and deliver world-class ICT enabled platforms to drive the next generation of research and innovation.
Developing such a coordinated approach to eResearch capacity building is critical to maintaining and enhancing NSW’s status as Australia’s leading research state and positioning NSW to compete favourably in the increasingly globalised and on-line world of research.
Intersect works closely with the Australian National Data Service (ANDS), Australian Research and Education Network (AREN) and AeRO, Australian eResearch Organisations. Intersect is a member of the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) and the Australian Access Federation (AAF).
