Google Fusion Tables is part of Google Drive, but since it is still considered Experimental (Beta) you will need to connect it to your Drive before you can use it. Fusion Tables are a database application with an interactive Chart builder and a Map builder. It is an excellent way to manage large and complex datasets, and allows you to filter (query) your database with multiple filters, then make tables, charts, and maps of the subsets you are interested in. One Fusion Table can drive many analyses and maps, reducing the time it takes for data management.
