Description

Data Visualisation with Google Fusion Tables

  • Equipment: Bring your own laptop (any O/S)

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.
