MapViewer is an affordable mapping and spatial analysis tool that allows you to produce publication-quality thematic maps easily. Small businesses, large corporations, independent consultants, scientists, GIS analysts, and numerous government agencies are discovering important trends in their data with MapViewer. Display your data distribution easily and precisely with more easy-to-use features than ever. Your data is unique and you need the best mapping software for the job!
A thematic map visually represents the geographic distribution of your data. MapViewer will help you to:
With MapViewer, you are not limited to the boundaries and data included in the program. You can import boundary files and data files in a number of formats to create truly customized maps!
- understand demographics
- define sales or insurance territories
- outline marketing strategies
- track population trends
- show ecological distribution
- display any geographically distributed data
MapViewer provides you with several map types to present your data in the most informative way possible. You can combine most map types in a single window to present several types of data in a single map. The MapViewer map types include:
Base maps contain boundaries without any data representation. Base maps can be used with other maps to show features such as roads, streams, city locations, boundaries that have no data associated with them, and so on.
Hatch maps use colors and fill patterns to represent data ranges or classes of data for each area on the map.
Density maps also called dot density maps, use symbols to represent data values for areas on a map. On a density map, each symbol represents some data value, so the number of symbols drawn in an area is in relation to the data values associated with that area.
Pie maps are a way to represent several data values by drawing a proportionally sized pie chart for each location.
Bar maps are a way to represent several data values by drawing a bar chart for each location.
Symbol maps place a scaled symbol on an area, curve, or point location on the map. The symbols are scaled in proportion to the data values represented for each area or point.
Prism maps draw each area, curve, or point as a raised prism, where the height of the prism is relative to the associated data value. Classed colors can also be assigned to prism map boundary objects, allowing you to display two variables on a single map!
Line Graph Maps
Line graph maps show line graphs of the data at each centroid location. By looking at a single line graph, you can see how the individual data value relates to the whole data set.
Flow maps show data based on line thickness. Flow map lines can be drawn from one base map object to another, or you can associate a data file with a base map of curves to create a flow map.
Pin maps are point location maps that draw a point at a particular location on a map.
MapViewer Boundary and Data Files
The following is a list of boundary and data files included with MapViewer.
These files are suitable for creating a wide variety of maps. You can also create custom boundaries by combining
existing boundaries or by using the drawing tools. MapViewer can import boundary files in several different
formats so you can also use files created in other applications.
The MapViewer CD-ROM contains Golden Software’s entire library of data files and boundary files.
- US County 2000
- US County 2000 High Resolution
- US County 1990
- US County 1990 High Resolution
- US Miscellany
- World Administrative
Importing Boundaries from Other Applications
MapViewer can import boundary information in several different vector and bitmap formats. These include:
Also, you can read coordinates from worksheet data files to place point locations on the map. Data files containing any type of coordinates can be used to indicate points.
- Golden Software GSM, GSB, BLN, PLT, GSI
- Atlas BNA
- USGS DDF (SDTS), DLG, LGO, LGS
- AutoCAD DXF
- Windows Metafile EMF, WMF, CLP
- Bitmap formats include TIF, BMP, TGA, PCX, GIF, DCX, JPG, PCT, WPG, PNG
- Georeferenced bitmaps
- ESRI SHP, E00
- MapInfo MIF
MapViewer creates thematic maps by linking worksheet data to areas or points on the map. If you need to display your own data on a map, MapViewer includes a full-featured worksheet that allows you to display, enter, edit, and save your data. You can read data files in many formats, including XLS, SLK, WKx, CSV, TXT, DAT, MDB, DBF, DB, BNA, and BLN. In the worksheet you can transform, sort, and calculate statistics on your data.
There are many additional features that MapViewer provides, including:
- Add graticules, legends, and scale bars to your map
- Limit the map to selected coordinates or a selected area
- Query the map and show the results in several ways
- Use one of the several map managers to easily keep track of your map
- Several reports such as centroid report, data for the selected object, and a general map report are available
- Measure the distance between selected Primary IDs or click on the map to find distances
- Annotate your maps with text using any typeface, size, or color
- Hyperlink locations on your map to a web site or any type of file
- Display information associated with areas, curves, and points on your map.
- Display place names, data information, or any type of text on your maps
- Create circles, squares, rectangles, polylines, polygons, or symbols at any location on the map
- Create multi-layered maps to present more information
- Zoom in on areas to show different levels of detail
- Create custom colors, line styles, and fill patterns
- Create maps using any coordinate system and recalibrate maps to use any coordinate system
- Use one of the 25+ map projections
- Convert areas to curves, curves to areas, and drawing objects to areas
- Edit polylines with break curve, reshape, and thin boundary
- View the data and the map simultaneously
- Move or copy map features between map layers
- Turn on or off the display of any map or page features
- Many more!
