Overlay Excel Data on a Department Map of Benin

Plot Data From Excel on a Territory Map

When overlaid with Excel data of locations, a department map of Benin provides insights to improve the production of its resources such as beans, cashew, cassava, cocoa, palm products, peanuts, pineapples, and rice. Formerly known as Dahomey, Benin is a West African country which is divided into 12 departments that are further divided into 77 communes. Currently, these agricultural products are grown for local subsistence. However, when locations are seen on a map, insights float around that can be eventually used for agricultural management.

In Mapline, you have the option to drop location map pins on a Benin Department map either one-by-one or by bulk. You can upload 500 locations for free. Also, Mapline’s repository is packed by thousands of territory boundaries including department boundaries.
