Immediately correlate to the real world
A map is different than any other visualization in that it immediately connects data to quickly understandable real-world context. That simple fact often brings fast insight and understanding, helping you clearly determine how location (store layout, seating chart, human anatomy) relates to other data features. Maps are often best for optimizing routing and scheduling, calculating the economic potential of your route network, reducing fuel emissions, optimizing site selection, and much more.
Business Value with Location Intelligence
Spotfire multi-layered maps are more powerful than those from other analytics vendors. As you zoom into each layer, for example, from the country down to the state, county, city, neighborhood, then the house level, you can choose to see associations of your choosing—not just the base map (roads), but data uniquely pertinent to that level.
Third-Party Base Maps
With support for Tile Map Services (TMS) and Web Map Service (WMS), you can use the base map of your choice from a large variety of free or paid third-party providers including Esri, HERE, Mapbox, OpenStreetMap, TomTom, and more.
Spotfire works with all map projections and natively supports shapefiles.
