Google Fusion Tables Turndown: An Alternative to Keep Mapping

You’ve probably heard that Google Fusion Tables and the Fusion Tables API will be turned down on December 3, 2019. This means embedded Fusion Tables visualizations (maps, charts, tables, and cards) will also stop working that day.

If you’re trying to find a Google Fusion Tables alternative, we have good news for you: CARTO can help. Transitioning to our platform is easy and you’ll get a ton of additional geospatial features on top of map visualizations.

Ready to enjoy the advantages of a full stack Location Intelligence platform?

What’s in the Package?

CARTO is a robust, cloud hosted solution for managing and analyzing spatial data, and provides very powerful map authoring and publishing workflows, as well as Spatial Data Science capabilities for taking your analysis to the next level.

Easy Drag-and-drop Mapping

You can easily create a web map from your browser with our drag and drop tool, and conduct advanced spatial calculations and analyses at scale, running common location analyses such as clustering and radius-of-influence. You can also add context using a range of built-in measures (including demographic, commercial, or environmental data).

Dynamic Data in the Cloud

Unlike other geospatial platforms, with CARTO you can truly enjoy the peace of mind of a fully managed geospatial database, and save time by creating views and new tables directly in our platform.

Capture the Power of Spatial Data Science

You can save time gathering and cleaning data by using our spatial data repository, Data Observatory, and speed up your analysis with CARTOframes—our Python package that allows you to interact with CARTO using your own libraries, functions, and workflows, visualizing straight out of Jupyter Notebooks.

Transition to CARTO

You can download your data from a table directly and export it to a CSV or KML file, or if you have many tables you can use the new dedicated Fusion Tables option in Google Takeout to download all your data in one step, exporting this data in the following formats: JSON, CSV and KML.

Once you have a CSV or KML file ready, you can quickly sync it into CARTO to create a map, style it, and publish it in 30 minutes.
