Using the MAP VIEWER in GeoLytics' CensusCD Demographic Data Products

Dear Subscriber,

Welcome to GeoLytics premier issue of our Newsletter where we will be reviewing useful features in our current products, imtroducing new product releases, and generally helping our users get the most out of their GeoLytics products. This first edition of the Newsletter helps our customers with mapping demographic data in the GeoLytics Map Viewer. Thank you in advance for continued support of GeoLytics products and services.

Are you getting the most out of the Map Viewer in your GeoLytics CensusCD products? Map demographic data with your CensusCDs without having to purchase expensive mapping software. Use the built-in mapping software to create useful thematic maps for all your reports, spreadsheets, and publications.

When you create a map with a CensusCD product, you can use your Map Viewer to view, edit, save, and print graphic visual displays of your data. The Map Viewer also enables users to export data and boundaries for use in other mapping software packages such as ArcGIS and MapInfo. With GeoLytics mapping technology, you can make maps quickly and easily. For an example of a map created by the GeoLytics Map Viewer, go to our website and visit some of the product pages (click here to see map of US).

The following are five frequently asked questions about using the Map Viewer in GeoLytics products.

  1. How do I select a gray scale for my map? When you are looking at a map on the screen and you want to change it to a gray or green scale, simply go to View (one of the choices along the top bar) and using the drop down menu select gray scale or green scale. To have the image revert back to multi-color, go to View and un-select gray or green scale.


  2. How do I change the colors of the map? When looking at the map, to the right is a column heading with 5 tabs (area, record, legend, layers, and log). Select the Legend tab. You will then see the ranges and the color bars. If you select the colored circle next to each range and click on it, a palette with lots of color choices will appear, make your selection and click OK. To save the map with these colors go to Statistics and select Save Colors.


  3. How do I change the number of ranges of my data shown on the map? When looking at the map, to the right is a column heading with 5 tabs (area, record, legend, layers, and log). Select the Legend tab. You will then see 3 fields: 5 ranges, equal ranges, and no rounding. Select 5 ranges. This will have a pull down menu where you can select the number of ranges into which you want to break down your data. Your map will be updated instantly.
  4. How do I find the mean, median, and standard deviation of my data? When looking at the map, to the right is a column heading with 5 tabs (area, record, legend, layers, and log). Select the Legend tab. You will see the ranges in colored bars, under that are the mean, median, and standard deviation.
  5. How do I label the different areas on my map? When looking at the map, to the right is a column heading with 5 tabs (area, record, legend, layers, and log). Select the Layers tab. The bottom line has 2 colored squares (color and borderclr) between them is an icon that looks like a book and is labeled "More". Select More. A new window will pop up and you can select the second field. It defaults to Never (show labels). If you select "When Possible" it will label only those areas that are not too close to each other so that you can view the label easily. If you select "Every Object" it will label all areas regardless of whether the labels are superimposed upon each other.

Running and creating a map with GeoLytics CensusCD products automatically generates a dBase file, which can be exported to use with other software including statistical (SAS, SPASS), database (Access, Oracle), and spreadsheet (Excel, 1-2-3). For an extended discussion on using the map viewer, please consult one of the user guides that are included in your purchase or it can be downloaded from the web site (click here). Also, there is an additional help section for the Map Viewer on the help contents when you run the CD and in the help section of the Map Viewer itself. Creating maps from demographic data has never been easier with GeoLytics built-in mapping technology.
