Module 5 - Class 1: Set Goals

Determine the data story you want to tell

Businesses don't always follow a set template in their operations, so neither should your maps. With eSpatial, you can import datasets to create unique, individualized maps for different products, services, customers, and other custom attributes. Simply upload the data you would like to visualize, whether it's customer and office locations or sales territories, and generate a base map to provide context. Once you've created your custom map, you can further personalize it by organizing your data by each unique attribute you'd like to display. With each attribute type loaded as a different dataset, you can add it to maps in separate, easily manageable layers.

Understand your audience

Tailoring your map to your target audience is easy with eSpatial. Whether the map is for internal use such as prospect locations for sales reps, or for an external embedded map on your website, the process of creating and customizing your map is manageable with eSpatial.

Decide the best way to visualize your story

Our large number of styling options will allow you to customize your map to best suit your needs. From Color, Size, and Symbol by value, to labelling and heat maps, and multiple analysis types, we offer numerous ways for you to visualize your story in the best way possible.

Choose your map type 

One of the most important parts of using eSpatial is choosing the right type of map for your project. We offer several different map types covering a wide range of use cases, all of which will be explained in detail in the classes below.
