Compare and contrast three products intended for quick geospatial visualization (e.g., a map to embed in a blog or PowerPoint, or for a poster session) and for some elementary GIS data analysis. (1) Google Earth: emphasis on its features particularly applicable in an academic setting; (2) GeoCommons: both a repository for spatial data as well as an analysis and visualization tool; and (3) Google Fusion Tables: merge datasets, filter and aggregate data, and visualize data by creating online maps and graphs.
