Thematic Mapper for Easy In-map Analytics

Welcome to another edition of the #All-Things-Spatial Newsletter. You received this email as a subscriber to MapDeck.com and/or client of aus-emaps.com. The focus of today’s communiqué is on data analysis...
  
The updated Thematic Mapper app, recently released on MapDeck.com platform, unlocks in-map analytic capabilities for organisations of any size or budget
 
Thematic Mapper is an example of the new generation of online mapping tools which allow full personalisation of information content on maps. That is, unlike traditional online maps which require an administrator to configure for end users what data to display and how, Thematic Mapper gives each user full control over the entire map creation and map publishing/sharing process. It is a whole new approach to creating online maps. 

For a limited time, all MapDeck users have the opportunity to try Thematic Mapper at no cost. The app is available for a one month free subscription until 20 December.

The arrival of cloud-based online mapping tools is democratising access to vital information for everybody, even the smallest companies, as well as individuals. 
 
Early adopters of cloud-based mapping solutions are realising enormous benefits - both monetary and strategic. In particular, instant and on-demand access to inexpensive analytical tools and information (on any device) allows individuals at all levels in an organisation to take advantage of location intelligence while making important business decisions.
 
With the release of the upgraded Thematic Mapper app MapDeck is taking the concept of in-map DIY spatial analytics to a whole new level. Specifically, Thematic Mapper users can now:
 
  • filter national and regional data to show just a selection of areas of interest, such as a single sales or franchise territory, retail catchment area, or a local neighbourhood;
  • combine public and private data, such as demographic statistics from Census surveys with company sales and customer data;
  • carry out in-map analysis on data and visualise results on maps and in summary tables;
  • customise presentation of information, from arrangement of preferred base maps and top overlays, to polygon styling according to personal preferences; and
  • publish or share privately all created content and information.

Australian Postcodes Map 2016
 
"Postcodes are by far the most popular location reference for business purposes. However, the definition of postcode boundaries tend to be ambiguous due to the various methodologies applied during creation and because there are many versions of the data in circulation at any particular point in time.
 
MapDeck has recently released a free interactive map in order to address some of that ambiguity. The map presents the latest 2016 postcode boundaries and 2011 edition of postal areas on a base map with detailed road network and topographic features to highlight subtle differences between various boundary versions."
