After Google Fusion Tables generates a map for you, it displays all the info from your spreadsheet for each dot on the map. When you click a dot, an info window opens.

YOU CAN CHANGE the way this information looks in the window. But you need to know a little HTML and some CSS to do it.

  1. [photo] Open the menu on the map tab (this is in the new version of Fusion Tables). Select “Change info window layout.”
  2. [photo] Click the Custom tab and edit the HTML there.
  3. [photo] View your new, improved info window!
