We've been busy this year! Come learn about some new, some hidden, and some surprising features of the Maps API, Earth API, Fusion Tables and other APIs you may not even realise exist.
Geospatial data has special requirements that aren't met by traditional database or cloud data storage. Google Fusion Tables offers a unique, easy way to upload, store, share, visualize, and manage your geospatial data. We'll walk you through how you can use Fusion Tables in your spatial data applications, covering the API, permissions, sharing, data collection, and advanced techniques.
Maps API applications are accessed on desktop and mobile devices of many shapes and sizes. Each application has unique goals for conveying information effectively and for facilitating user interactions. Learn how to improve user experience by optimizing the presentation of your map and data and by thoughtful user interface design.
