We hope you are having a productive week and business is getting back to something that resembles normal. On another note, at least the sun has been out!

In this week’s Mapsimise Tips and Tricks we are covering the process of building layers of data with our drawing tools, because you probably already know that you can draw on a map, but did you know that you can overlay your drawings to filter data?

We have a "How to Overlay Data" Tips and Tricks video to view.  We hope you find these short demos useful and if you can, please do subscribe to the YouTube channel for more updates here.

We are actively building up our resources to help you and your teams get the best from the platform, helping you to do more with Mapsimise. Do let us know what would help best.

We also plan to start producing some video case studies.  So, if you would like to take part, get in touch.

But for now, let’s focus on filtering data with multiple filters that overlay on a map.

How to overlay data with drawing tools in Mapsimise

There are several drawing tools available, and in the example below the data has been filtered by using 3 of the drawing tools creating 5 filters at the bottom of the map.

You can draw single shapes with the polygon tool, but you can also combine filters to create a single shape, which in turn means you can change the size of the different filters to gain a more accurate view as needed.

Any filters drawn on a map will combine and they do not need to be overlaid, which gives the ability to draw multiple shapes in different areas.

Any data that is related to the individual filter drawn will be displayed in the grid section for each area, allowing you to see which records are in which location.

What's the benefit?

Mapsimise is great for understanding charting and visualising data. Once you have created your unique filters and have the data you need, you can create marketing lists, export to excel or chart the data to get a representation of each data type by its location.

If you have connected your Microsoft Dynamics or your Salesforce subscription, you can build lists for use within these applications or send the related data directly to MailChimp or DotDigital for marketing activities.

If you would like to find out more about Mapsimise, we have an active blog site and knowledgebase. If you missed any of our previous Tips and Tricks, you can also find them on our blog.
