Plot pins on an interactive map quickly and easily.




Transform Excel data into pins on a map

A pin map is the simplest way to express data using eSpatial. It plots a pin wherever there is a geographic location contained in your data: zip code, street, state, country, etc. Just upload an Excel spreadsheet with a column containing locations and – depending on the size of the data – it will be plotted on a map in seconds. You can then start to interact with your data or, alternatively, use the suite of eSpatial tools to analyze it.

Plot huge amounts of data

Up to 100,000 geocodes (1 geocode = 1 row of Excel spreadsheet data) can be uploaded to eSpatial per 24-hours. You can summarize and group pins – “cluster” them – according to geographic region. For instance, if you have 10 locations plotted in one city, then this will be summarized on the map by a number – the number “10”. This is a useful shorthand feature when you are dealing with massive amounts of data spread throughout a region.

Compare and contrast layers of data

You can create complex visualizations that reveal the different levels of data that impact your business. For instance if you were a distribution company, you could create a 3-layer pin map revealing location of customers, sales personnel and warehouses. Each would be expressed using a different color. Layers can be switched on or off, as required.

Pack your pins with spreadsheet data

Each pin on an eSpatial map contains the data contained in each row of your spreadsheet. This allows you to find information geographically, which is faster and more intuitive than simply reading a spreadsheet. You can also link to web pages or CRM pages, by building links into a map pin.

Choose different styles of pin – or make your own

eSpatial comes with a menu of map icons. Use different icons to express different data on a pin map. You can also express volumes per pin by the actual size of the pin on the map – large for large volumes, small for small volumes. You can also have your logo – or another relevant graphic – attached to map pins.
