Mapline Introduces Radial Heat Mapping

Another reason for Mapliners to shout for joy! The radial heat map functionality is ready to go!

Radial heat mapping is often associated with weather forecast. But that’s not all. This is another intuitive way to represent geographical information density according to color. Geographical locations data can also be heat mapped using this feature. Organizations have been asking us to add this feature as radial heat maps can help them them track their marketing program impact. Anyone who wants to visualize a geo-spatial element’s size by radius derived from a data field will be thrilled to get their first radial heat map created.

When you look at the map above, it will show color coded concentrations of the data. So in a way, just by the look of it, map users can identify where the more condensed areas of data are located (as shown by red color) and less condensed areas (in blue) and varying degrees of colors in between (green, yellow, orange, etc).

The radial heat mapping is so easy to use. When you add a layer to a map, you will notice a heat mapping icon next to the layer (on the left sidebar) that will enable you to apply the radial heat map options.
