The Google Fusion Table includes general location information such as

  • Name
  • Address, City, State, Country
  • Latitude, longitude geopoint
  • Location category
  • Foursquare Venue ID
  • Factual ID

The Fusion Table also includes all accessibility amenities that have been collected by the community. A row in the Fusion Table represents a single location. Each row will include columns for all amenities however a location will only have information that is relevant to itself, for example, restaurants will have different amenities available than a museum.

The columns in the Google Fusion Table come from the Access Together questions. Below is a listing of questions and their associated column names.
