Google Fusion Tables

Apparently Google had developed a basic database and data visualization stack with Google Fusion Tables. Pretty interesting as it has the basic principles of a database and a business intelligence tool with collaborative data commits.


  1. Can you connect Google fusion tables up as data source/destinations via Talend?

  2. Hi Marcus, It looks like you can do that. Refer to the google fusion tables API at

    You can create the url string of the select query in Talend and pass it to one of the internet components, fetch the resultset from the API and then write it out to a text file or intermediate buffer. You can then read the buffer to get output of the select query. Should be pretty straightforward I guess.

    Let me know how your experience was in connecting them. I would be real interested to know. Thanks for commenting.
