Choropleth or "heat" mapping

Heat mapping is an effective way of charting complex data to make it immediately understandable and intuitive to the viewer such as:

  • Plotting the density of customers or competitor sites in a location
  • Showing average customer spend in an area
  • Summarising demographic trends amongst an audience

We can set areas by postcode, administrative area or bespoke areas defined by you, and we can use any colour scale to match your chosen theme or company brand.

Point mapping

A point set map allows you to turn table data into something that is easy to understand and refer to. These points could be anything you’d like mapped: your best customers, store network, competitors or distributors. Map points can be based on:

  • UK postcodes or a central point calculated from incomplete postcode sectors or areas
  • Ordnance Survey National Grid reference or coordinates
  • Latitude and longitude data
  • Centralised points calculated from administrative geography

Point sets can be colour coded with custom icons, so multiple datasets can be displayed side by side.

  • Actual on-road travel distances or times
  • Customer value or count within an area

Catchments can be calculated to allow overlaps or draw definite borders between areas. Our tools will distribute areas based on your set criteria.
