Outline: Mapping in ENVISION

This course is geared to users who have already completed some standard ENVISION training. In this course we will be using Assets like customer files, locations and trade areas, which have been previously uploaded into or created within an ENVISION account. 

In the ENVISION Mapping lessons, you will learn how to create maps that add value to your analysis. Bring the data to life with maps that help visualize your findings.

These lessons help to answer the following questions:

  • How do I visualize where my customers are coming from at higher concentrations?
  • How can I map sales volumes and customer distribution?
  • How can I find areas with high percentage of demographic variables?
  • How can I add my company logo onto my location map?

The functionality we will cover will ensure you understand how to:

  • Map variables, customers and trade areas
  • Tame thematic layers by editing methods, ranges and colors/colours
  • Add annotations, personalized logos and location symbols to your map
  • Save, share and publish maps for distribution to internal and external stakeholders via our microsite functionality
