Plot data on Google Maps
eSpatial lets you plot data, customize it and analyze it on Google Maps.
eSpatial and Google Maps
eSpatial works by overlaying Excel spreadsheet data onto Google Maps, the most up-to-date and trusted mapping system in the world today. Access mapped data from any computer or mobile device that has an internet connection.
Plot data on Google Maps quickly and easily
Always up-to-date geographic information
Desktop mapping software can go out of date very quickly, resulting in data failing to plot. This is because geographic data is in a constant state of flux. eSpatial users run global businesses, across many territories. It is important that they have information that gives then a true picture of their market. That’s why they use eSpatial to plot data on Google maps.
Advantage of using Google Maps
Google Maps is continually updated – not just with geographic data, but also commercial data. That means that anyone who uses eSpatial to map their data can be confident that decisions they make will be based on the latest available geographic information.
No downloads required
Like eSpatial, Google Maps is cloud-based. Therefore, integration of the two services is seamless. Cloud-based services mean no downloads are required when mapping data. Storage is also online, and sharing can be done simply by copying and pasting a web page link into an email. The person receiving an eSpatial map link does not need any built-in (downloadable) software to access the map.
When there are free updates to eSpatial software, they occur seamlessly – you won’t notice they’ve happened until we tell you about the new added features!
Growing number of basemaps
Another advantage when you plot data on Google Maps using eSpatial is that you can layer that data onto different styles of basemap. At the moment, we offer 12 different styles of map – including roadmap, terrain and satellite – which you can access with just one click. This facilitates greater flexibility when it comes to data visualization: use different styles to express different data.
Access Google Streetview
When you plot a point in eSpatial, you can link directly to that point in Google Streetview. This is a great planning tool, allowing you to get street-level insight. Just click on the “Pegman” icon in the information box, and you’ll be taken to Streetview in a tabbed window – click between it and eSpatial.
