Over the last couple of weeks, many people have been asking me for the download links for GeoFlow. Well, I am pleased to say that GeoGlow has made it’s public preview today and is available for download now. Find below some useful links (including the download link)
- GeoFlow Forum:Post and answer questions for the product team and community
- GeoFlow Facebook Page: Share datasets, tours, and blogs
- GeoFlow Product Page on Office.com: Download requirements, directs to Web Download page below
- GeoFlow Download Page: Download the bits on Microsoft Download Center
- Excel Blog : Dallas Utilities: Electricity seasonal use simulation using project codename “GeoFlow” Preview and Power View
And I guess it is time to cut down on some of the earlier limitations that I had mentioned about the beta release of GeoFlow:-
– Related tables are not supported in this release.All the data should be in one table.
– Backend data changes are not reflected in the visualization in this release and this will mean deleting and recreating the visualizations.
– No Undo/Redo is supported in this release.
– No way to slice and dice data within the visualization
– No drill down functionalities from a higher level (say, states) to a lower level (say, counties) which is there in tools like Power View. Not bad huh? Some new features are also there like the Top / Bottom 100 Chart shown below. It is interesting to note that GeoFlow is not available to all versions of Excel 2013. The supported Microsoft Office versions are:
- Office Professional Plus 2013
- Office 365 ProPlus
- Office 365 Midsize
- Office 365 E3
- Office 365 E4
Enough of me telling, it’s time to explore this add-in on your own now. Download GeoFlow today and take your data for a 3-D drive!
