More Fusion Tables Spatial Queries

UK Charities Map

The Daily Telegraph newspaper in the UK has produced a nice Google Map of UK Charities using Fusion Tables. The map displays the location of 150,000 charities in England and Wales.

One of the most amazing features of Fusion Tables with Google Maps is that it can cope with so many markers. However there are times that you wouldn't want to overwhelm the map user with so many map markers. I therefore thought that this would be a good map to tweak to use the new spatial queries with Fusion Tables.

UK Charities Map Tweaked
Using the same Fusion Table data created for The Telegraph's map I have created this map that uses a spatial query to only show the closest 10 charities to the current map centre.

I think the map is a good example of how you can create a powerful store locator with Google Maps and Fusion Tables. As always feel free to view, copy and adapt the code as you want.
