Excel GeoFlow

Here’s a second example of Microsoft making a big BI-related announcement at the Sharepoint Conference and not PASS, and so ensuring that no-one in the Microsoft SQL Server BI community hear about it… Excel GeoFlow.

So far I’ve only found two sources of information on it – Jen Underwood’s blog post:
