As you may know by now Mapsimise can be used for many different data types; from customer analysis to sales, marketing, and service.

Mapsimise has been designed to help you understand your data by location giving you location intelligence.  The map on the right shows a lot of data, but by using the different pin colours per data type, you can instantly get an understanding of what activity and what data relates to which area.

So how do you do this?

Each map can have multiple layers of data, but each layer can also have multiple “Pin Variations”. This enables you to define any data from a given map layer to be more visual.

Each layer has the ability to be edited and from the burger menu on the layer, just select 'Edit' for the individual layer.

On selecting 'Edit', a new screen will be displayed. Here you can select the 'Pin Variation' tab to set the related colours for your pins. Each of the field types in the data set can be assigned multiple colours, but we recommend that you keep it consistent. You can see we have selected a different colour for the different types of crime this the next screenshot.

Quick Tip: Data Fields

With each subscription of Mapsimise you can have a number of associated Datatables to upload data. You can also manage data into tables and delete the tables when they are no longer needed.

Doing this will make it easier to select the field for pin variations and for use in quick filters. Next week we will be looking at Datatables, connectors and filtering in more detail.
