A few weeks ago, I went to my first Hacks/Hackers meetup on Google Fusion tables. I sat there mostly overwhelmed while people walked us step-by-step through creating elaborate data visualizations. (See here, here and here.)
I created my own, albeit simple, map from my resume. I’m hoping to explore a little more with the special features and eventually move on to the shapes feature. I can’t embed it, but you can see it here.
