What Can Maptive’s Excel Maps Do?

Maptive provides hundreds of features that let you view your spreadsheet data in completely new ways. Below is just a sampling of what is possible. If you have a specific type of map you want, feel free to view all our features or ask us a question using the button at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.

Heat Map Excel Data

Generate a heat map based on the geographic location of each row of data. Additionally, if you want to add weight to the locations in your spreadsheet, you can select a column such as sales or clients. The resulting heat map will be darker where there are more total sales and lighter where there are few or none.

Group spreadsheet data on a map

Select a column in your Excel data and Maptive will automatically find all of the unique values in that column. Then we’ll place a colored marker on the map for each row in your spreadsheet. Each color in the map area will represent one of the unique values from the grouping column.

Map zip codes based on your data

The boundary tool incorporates a US zip code map that displays the borders of the approximately 43,000 zip codes in the United States. In moments, you can combine your own data with the comprehensive information – including the latest census data – provided by Maptive. Plus, shade zip codes with different colors based on the data within them to quickly analyze your map. Also, postal codes for countries such as Canada, the UK, and Australia are available.
