An Open Source Fusion Tables Map Template
Derek Eder's Searchable Map Template with Google Fusion Tables is a free, open source tool that helps you create a searchable, filterable Google Map from a Fusion Table.
The template can create a Google Map pulling in data from any Fusion Table. It includes a number of features, including, an address search (with variable radius), geolocation (automatically center the map on the user's location), results count (using the Google's Fusion Tables API) and the ability to easily add additional search filters (checkboxes, sliders, etc).
Derek Eder's website includes a number of maps created with the template. These include Derek's own maps, mainly centred on Chicago and lots of maps created by others with the template,
