Transform Location Data into Action by Using a US Military Installation Map

How Mapping Military Installation Boundaries can be Used in Spatial Analysis

The US military installation map not only shows the military bases in the country. When Excel locations data is added, the map can transform data into actionable information. With an overlay of territory boundaries, a map is a very powerful data visualization that allows you to understand the relationships between locations. In fact, it provides answers to spatial questions that require a deeper understanding of geographical boundaries as well as the connections between locations. 

If you apply some other mapping tools such as distance measurement, you can determine how two locations are related. Measuring and analyzing distances between all your locations takes only a few clicks. When this tool is applied, you are able to visualize how the locations may be nearby, or accessible. Additionally, you are able to gain insights that are valuable for decision-making on how to improve transportation routes, optimize supply chain, and expansion.
