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. It’s an Excel addin for geospatial analysis that is closely integrated with PowerPivot and looks very similar to Layerscape, but properly integrated with Excel and PowerPivot. So far I’ve only found two sources of information on it – Jen Underwood’s blog post:

…and, this very detailed post from Patrick Guimonet (in French), which has a lot of screenshots and several long videos shot during the Sharepoint Conference:
