The Office team has unveiled something really special today – a Microsoft Research project codenamed GeoFlow that lets you plot geographic and temporal data visually, analyze that data in 3D, and create interactive "tours" to share with others.
According to The Excel Blog, GeoFlow evolved “out of the successful WorldWide Telescope project for scientific and academic communities to explore large volumes of astronomical and geological data. Researchers collaborated closely with the Office product team to usher GeoFlow from its research lab inception to this public preview availability in Excel.”
Check out the video above and then head on over to The Excel Blog to get the rest of this really cool story. Also, you can download the Add-in for Excel 2013 with Office 365 ProPlus or Office Professional Plus 2013.
