Turning your spreadsheets into maps using Google Fusion Tables
View fusion-tables.md

This guide will walk you through the process of using Google Fusion Tables to turn a spreadsheet into a map.

Before we begin, make sure you are logged into your Google account. (Note to Lens staff: Our work accounts don't seem to allow Google Fusion Tables, so log in as a separate account for now.)

Read on for a detailed explanation of the steps.

1. Saving your spreadsheet as a CSV file

CSV (comma-separated values) files are the same as Excel files (.xlsx and .xls), for all intents and purposes. You can open either in Excel. The key difference is that CSV files aren't specific to any single program, so they can be used by any program.
