The Drive Time Polygons Tool allows you to create a polygon in hours and minutes from any of your locations in order to quickly determine how much time you’ll need to get to other locations on your map. This tool makes it easy to quickly run a proximity analysis on a segment of your location data. It’s useful for determining where certain points on your map lie, how far one map point is from other points on your map, and seeing how many points on your map exist within various distance increments. The end result is a beautifully simple, easy-to-understand visualization of your location data.
- Build a drive time polygon around a location. Creating a drive time polygon around a location can be done in a matter of seconds. All you have to do is choose your starting location marker, set your drive time, add further customization if desired, and that’s it.
- Adjust distance and color. The Drive Time Polygon tool allows you to easily adjust in real-time the hours and minutes you originally set. You can also select a color for your polygon to make it even easier to view on your map.
- Customize information. After your polygon has been created, you can choose to customize the popup that appears within the polygon. This is useful when you are creating multiple polygons on your map and need to quickly identify or categorize the location data captured within your polygions.
- Export locations. Exporting location data within your polygon is incredibly simple and convenient, and can be done in just 1-click. Data is exported into a XLS or CSV file.
Upload custom images using the Drawing Tool and incorporate them throughout the map. For example, you could upload logos, store location photos, manager photos, or other photos related to individual locations in your map.

The Location Finder Tool basically acts as store locator software for the locations you load into your map. Enter any address, or let the store locator use your current location, and the tool will find the closest locations to that spot. Once the location search is finished, the details about the locations will be displayed along the right side of the map. This will include the distance to your location, the store name, address, and links that will help you find directions to the store using Maptive or Google maps. Maptive will also zoom the map so that your location and the results are easy to see.

The Heat Mapping Tool makes it easy to visualize and identify trends in your location data on a Google map. You can use our heat mapping software to visualize marker density or numerical data tied to geographic locations. Customize your heat map by adjusting its radius, opacity, intensity threshold, and the gradient colors displayed in your heat map. You can also choose to display just one single color.
What is a heat map?
Heat maps represent the density of data within different areas of a map. Data is aggregated based on its location and given a radius of influence, which you can adjust. As the density of data increases in that area the heat map will display a color indicating higher intensity. The heat map will also have a maximum threshold which will be represented by the highest color on the gradient or the darkest color if you are using a single color.
What can I use location heat mapping for?
A geographic heat maps can help you identify trends in data that would otherwise be hard to see. You can quickly see areas that might already be saturated and other areas where there is still a market opportunity.
You can add demographic data to the map using the boundary tool. Currently we have US census data for zip code, counties, states, and congressional districts. These overlays are useful in spotting key trends in your data. With demographic overlays on your map, you can easily segment your data and access location-specific information related to race, housing, age, citizenship status, education, income, transportation, labor, and gender.
- Display demographic boundaries. Creating boundaries that identify trends related to demographic census data can be done in a matter of seconds. All you have to do is open the boundary tool in your map, select your boundary type, and choose the option to fill your boundaries with demographic census data.
- Flag boundaries for later. Demographic overlays allow you categorize boundaries for later review. If you are looking to grow your business and need to find areas to expand you can use demographic overlays to find boundaries that have similar demographics. You can then categorize boundaries as good or bad prospects.
- Adjust boundary size and color. In Maptive, your boundary width, boundary color, fill color, fill opacity, and number ranges can all be adjusted to your specific needs and preferences.
- Edit boundaries at any time. Once your boundaries have been created, they can be easily edited in real-time right from within your map.
