Easily Mark Your Map Boundries

The Boundary Tool allows you to add geographic boundaries to a map which also contains your data. You can then easily associate a column of your data to the individual borders that are on the map. This lets you display your data inside the boundaries on the map with just a few clicks. As an example, if you have sales data from all over the world, you could use the boundary tool to aggregate that data into each country.

Then you could shade those countries a different color based on total sales. The end result is a map that can help you better visualize your data and when put into a presentation can help make your point quickly to other decision makers in your business.

Step 2:

Start with street addresses or other location-based data. Upload your data via an Excel spreadsheet, Google Sheets, or your CRM data. Or copy and paste.

Step 3:

Once your data populate on the Google map, click on the Boundary/Geographic Territory Tool in your toolkit on the left-hand side of your map.

Step 4:

From there, choose the desired boundary type (state, zip code, postal code, etc.) and what kind of fill you would like the boundary to have (if any). There are several boundary fill types:

  • No Fill
  • Your Numerical Data: An aggregate of numerical data within a chosen column represented by customizable colored fills in each boundary area.
  • Your Group/Territory Data: Also an aggregate of your numerical data, but shaded by defined group or territory. This is useful for showing both geographical boundaries and sales territories.
  • Marker Count/Location Density: Customizable shaded regions based on the density of your markers within boundary lines.
  • Demographic Census Data (Only available for select boundary types): Fills based on data points pulled from census data (primarily the U.S. Census). This includes population density, age, gender, transportation, education, etc. Also, the census data is automatically populated by Maptive when you choose this option.

Whether you want to customize a map of the counties in the United Kingdom, the postal codes in Australia, the congressional districts in the United States, or the postal codes in Spain, a boundary map created with Maptive’s easy-to-use boundary tool is your ticket to better understanding your location-based data.
