Microsoft GeoFlow

Microsoft GeoFlow is a three-dimensional data visualization  tool for Microsoft Excel. 

GeoFlow, which was first introduced as an add-on to Excel in Microsoft Office 2013, can be integrated with SQL Server and Microsoft Bing Maps to present data in 3-D. The SQL Server data used in GeoFlow can be visualized on the maps over a time period, creating animations that business analysts can record and share with others. According to Microsoft, GeoFlow can plot more than one million rows of data from an Excel workbook using columns, heat maps and bubble visualizations.

GeoFlow is one of several data visualization tools that Microsoft has introduced that tie SQL Server into self-service business intelligence. Others include PowerPivot and Power View.
