Now, with just a few clicks, you can now use this territory boundary to run analytics or segment your location data. This territory boundary is a significant mapping tool in collecting and organizing data for large urbanized areas.  To be considered a census metropolitan area (CMA), an area should have the following criteria:

  • Must have one or more neighboring municipalities around a core. A population centre is the core.
  • Must have a total population of at least 100,000. At least half of it must be living in the core. 

A lot more mapping options can be used to enhance data analysis. One of which is customizing your map pins. The power of visualization comes more alive when map pins are customized. It intensifies patterns and relationships between locations, as well as their connection with their boundary.
