Maug - Cloud Mapping

  1. 1. CLOUD MAPPING: GOOGLE FUSION MAPS & ARCGIS ONLINENov, 11 2011 by: William Rockwell, GIS Coordinator Village of Vernon Hills
  2. 2. Google Fusion Maps/TablesPros Cons Free  Simple symbology Easy to use  No XY editing Easy to share data & maps  Getting GIS into Customizable Google Heatmap Collaboration options  Hard to see all fields Charts / Graphs  Single layer per map No security worries
  3. 3. Google Fusion Maps Visualize and publish your data as maps, timelines and charts  Import your own data Upload data tables from spreadsheets or CSV files, even KML. Developers can use the Fusion Tables API to insert, update, delete and query data programmatically. You can export your data as CSV or KML too.  Visualize it instantly See the data on a map or as a chart immediately. Use filters for more selective visualizations.  Publish your visualization on other web properties Now that youve got that nice map or chart of your data, you can embed it in a web page or blog post. Or send a link by email or IM. It will always display the latest data values from your table and helps you communicate your story more easily.  Better for desktop viewing than mobile*
  4. 4. Google Fusion Maps Make a map in minutes  Turn location tables into maps Points, lines, polygons, customer addresses, place names, countries and more can be mapped. Columns with location data are automatically interpreted.  Share that map! Embed it in a blog, send collaborators a link, save it as a KML file to view in Google Earth, or even take advantage of Fusion Tables to host your dynamic KML link so collaborators will always see the latest mapped data.
  5. 5. Google Fusion Maps Host data online  Fusion Tables is like an online file format Want to make data available? Link to your dataset hosted in Fusion Tables and your websites users can see the data without downloading it. They can explore ways to map, chart, calculate on or even search the data. They can apply filters and download just the subset thats useful to them. Or you can prevent export - its up to you.  Always distribute the most correct version of your data Enable use without creating hundreds of copies of your data sitting around on hard drives. When data is hosted in Fusion Tables, viewers will always see the latest version. Charts or maps theyve made will automatically update when you improve your dataset.
  6. 6. Google Fusion Maps Mapping with your own data  Supported data types  Comma-separated files (.csv) - Up to 100 MB  Microsoft Excel files (.xls, .xlsx) - Up to 1 MB  OpenDocument Spreadsheet (.ods) - Up to 1 MB  Keyhole Markup Language (.kml) - Up to 100 MB  Data already in a Google Spreadsheet (infinite?)  Location columns  In order to visualize tabular data on a map, you must have columns that include location information. Fusion Tables accepts:  latitude and longitude must be in decimal degrees  place names, such as addresses and place names  or snippets of KML which contain point, line or polygon geometries.
  7. 7. Google Fusion Maps Data Interoperability  Merge your data with other peoples data Does someone else have different data about the same entities you do? Tables of data owned by different people can be merged virtually in Fusion Tables to see all information in one place.  Always up to date When any base data table is updated, the merged table will show the latest value too.  Share only what you want to Need to keep some of your dataset private? Publish a subset of rows or columns that stays up-to-date with the original table, but has its own share permissions.  Build on public data sets Some data owners have selected to make their data public. Search for and take a look at these data sets or call them via the Fusion Tables API. You can merge with another persons public KML boundaries to make a custom intensity map, merge a flag image data set to make your map bubbles more colorful, and much more.  Keep track of who owns what Fusion Tables helps you keep track of where data is from. During import or at any time, you can specify attribution for the data. The attribution will appear even when your data is merged into other tables.

  9. 9. Google Fusion Maps Tutorials & Tools How to make an intensity map with custom boundaries (demo) Other tutorials  This website lets you import a shapefile (zipped) to Google Fusion Tables. Max 200MB, or 100K features FusionTablesLayer Builder  This wizard helps you create the HTML for a map with a FusionTablesLayer and search element (either text-based search or select menu). After creating your map, you can copy and paste the HTML code to display the map on your own website.

  11. 11. ArcGIS Online
  12. 12. ArcWhat Online?ArcGIS Online ArcExplorer Online Geared toward map viewing /  Geared toward desktop sharing maps  Can determine popup info  Can determine popup info  Make queries  No queries  Add dashboard gadgets  Shared maps work great on (feature) charts, summary mobile  No selection  Make map presentations (map ppt?)  Edit feature services & shp*  Edit feature services & shp Good for map sharing with public  More in-depth – Map making
  13. 13. ArcGIS Online  Map and data can be consumed by any of the smartphone apps (iOS, Android, Windows), a browser, etc  Any of these apps can create or edit feature services from ArcGIS Server  Data would not have to live outside of the GIS  You are accessing your most current data.  If security is an issue, you can create a private group on ArcGIS Online, add people to your group (village employees, etc), and your data and services would only be available to the folks in that group.
  14. 14. ArcGIS OnlineFeatured Maps  Unlike Google Fusion maps, data is not really meant to reside on ESRI servers.  This may change as ArcGIS online is evolving  Better mobile viewing of maps than Google  Requires ESRI login to save/share maps.  All maps, if shared, are open to public  Better symbology tools than Google
  15. 15. ArcGIS Online File Requirements  Text file (.txt) or (.csv)  GPX file  Shapefile – zipped, max 1,000 features, no multipatch, multipoint, or self intersecting polygons Best to publish ArcGIS Services to cloud Dragging and dropping of text files not allowed in IE orSafari All uploaded data can be viewed in ArcGIS /ArcExplorer online
