Google Fusion Tables is a cloud-based service for data management and integration. Fusion Tables enables users to upload tabular data files (spreadsheets, CSV, KML), currently of up to 100MB. The system provides several ways of visualizing the data (e.g., charts, maps, and timelines) and the ability to filter and aggregate the data. It supports the integration of data from multiple sources by performing joins across tables that may belong to different users. Users can keep the data private…

Google fusion tables: web-centered data management and collaboration
TLDR
This paper characterizes such users and applications and highlights the resulting principles, such as seamless Web integration, emphasis on ease of use, and incentives for data sharing, that underlie the design of Fusion Tables.
Extracting Information from Google Fusion Tables
TLDR
This paper discusses ongoing and future work concerning the integration of Fusion Tables in the aim of efficiently integrating, visualizing, and querying them.
Applying SPARQL-DQP for Federated SPARQL Querying over Google Fusion Tables
TLDR
This work presents a system that exposes GFT tables as SParQL endpoints, enabling federated SPARQL queries with data from other SPARQs, and exposing it as (virtual) RDF dataset and to query it usingSPARQL.
Connecting WSN to Google fusion tables, a REST database for data storage
TLDR
ZigBee connectivity in wireless sensor network environment to transfer sensor reading, collected by the sensor node to the smartphone that act as a gateway to make the HTTP request to the targeted server, which is for this paper is to be stored in Google Fusion Tables (GFT) server.
Visual analytics for open government data
TLDR
This tutorial focuses on Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for mapping data using ArcGIS Explorer, a cloud based data integration and visualization tool and Google Fusion Tables for tabular data, and is geared toward social science researchers, students and citizens in general.
Finding Quality in Quantity: The Challenge of Discovering Valuable Sources for Integration
TLDR
The vision for a new data source management system that automatically assesses the quality of data sources based on a collection of rigorous data quality metrics and enables the automated and interactive discovery of valuable sources for user applications is introduced.
DAIS: dynamic access and integration services framework for cloud-oriented storage systems
TLDR
In the experiments, performance, bandwidth and energy efficiency of the proposed DAIS framework have been demonstrated and compared with three different approaches like, Static DAIS, P2P and DSSM, and Energy efficiency results have been compared with two popular approaches HBase and Hadoop-MR.
Rule-Based Exploration of Structured Data in the Browser
We present Dexter, a browser-based, domain-independent structured-data explorer for users. Dexter enables users to explore data from multiple local and Web-accessible heterogeneous data sources such
Using Google Fusion Tables for Cloud-based sensor observation services
TLDR
The design and implementation of a Cloud-based sensor observation service using Cloud Computing database in SOS services is presented and challenges of developing applications and approaches on the integration of GFT and SOS are discussed.
