Creating GeoMaps in Google Spreadsheets

An often underused feature of Google Spreadsheets is the chart feature. When you create a spreadsheet from either a spreadsheet or a form, you have the ability to insert a chart with selected data. That chart has great educational potential.

For instance, you can make a GeoMap chart to show regions where more people live or where more people  want to travel, etc. You could also do one over political turmoil. As students enter in data, they can plot a variety of charts.

Check out some of the great charts Google offers tutorials on (beginning with Google's GeoMap chart):
