Microsoft Bing team today released the public preview of project codename “Geoflow” for Excel. “Geoflow” is a 3D visualization tool that helps users map, explore and interact with both geographic and chronological data, enabling discoveries that could be difficult to identify with traditional 2D tables and charts. To see the power of Big Data on Bing Maps – including how it plots both geographical location and intensity of data via columns, bubble visualizations and heat maps check the link below.

With GeoFlow, you can:

  1. Map Data: Plot more than one million rows of data from an Excel workbook, including the Excel Data Model or PowerPivot, in 3D on Bing maps. Choose from columns, heat maps, and bubble visualizations.
  2. Discover Insights: Discover new insights by seeing your data in geographic space and seeing time-stamped data change over time. Annotate or compare data in a few clicks.
  3. Share Stories: Capture “scenes” and build cinematic, guided “tours” that can be shared broadly, engaging audiences like never before.
