Tired of a huge Greenland? IdevioMaps has the solution

Are northern Canada and Greenland taking up too much of the space on your map? IdevioMaps now includes maps with a new projection that dynamically adjusts to the viewed area.

mercatorVsIdevioAdaptive

Left is the Mercator projection used in most web maps. Right is the Idevio Adaptive projection. The upper left corner and scale is the same.

The projection used in most web maps is Mercator. The big downside of Mercator is that areas close to the poles are extremely exaggerated.  The Idevio Adaptive projection adjusts to the viewed area. When zoomed out it looks like the right picture above and when zooming in it adapts to the aspect ratio at the location. This is possible due to Idevio’s unique vector data technology. Read more about projections in this blog.

The Idevio Adaptive projection is now available in IdevioMaps in the base maps Default Adaptive and Plain Adaptive. Just choose the Base Map in Map Settings as in the screenshot below.

adaptivemapoption

Choose the base map Default Adaptive or Plain Adaptive under Map Settings in Idevio Map.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact us at info@idevio.com.

scaledpiesandip

IdevioMaps 5.6.0 is now available for download for both Qlik Sense and QlikView and the GeoAnalytics features are already available in the connector wizard.

Some highlights from the new versions are:

  • Most external geodata needs to be simplified before used. Idevio releases the new Simplify operation in GeoAnalytics. A unique combination of high quality simplification and ease of use. See more info about that in this blog entry. Also the Dissolve operation make use of the new simplification features.
  • Have IP addresses in your data? Now you can easily plot it on a map using the new IPLookup operation in Idevio GeoAnalytics.
  • IdevioMaps for Qlik Sense now supports scalable pie charts so that the size of the pie chart is controlled by an expression.
  • Now you can easily connect to ESRI ArcGIS Server since GeoAnalytics has new support for the ESRI JSON format.
  • Added support for the GML format makes it easy to connect to map data produced by WFS servers (OGIS standard).
  • A change that already is available to all IdevioMaps users is that there is now “one world”. The map is not repeated even if there is room for it.

See bi.idevio.com for more information or contact info@idevio.com.

Idevio GeoAnalytics Plus and new IdevioMaps for Sense 3.0

Idevio GeoAnalytics Plus features unlimited calculations and access to local data

GeoAnalytics3_banner

Idevio presents a new version of GeoAnalytics called GeoAnalytics Plus. The Plus version makes it possible to access local databases and files and also do unlimited calculations.

See this comparison of the GeoAnalytics versions for more information. Also see GeoAnalytics on bi.idevio.com for general information on GeoAnalytics.

IdevioMaps 5.5.3

Idevio also releases an update of IdevioMaps for Qlik with a few improvements and also a few fixes for Qlik Sense 3.0. Some highlights of the new version:

  • It is now possible to set limits on how long it should be possible to zoom in and out of IdevioMaps. This also means that it is possible to zoom in longer than before.
  • For Qlik Sense 3.0 the looks of some buttons have been adjusted and there also is a bugfix in the Geodata Layer. For you that use the Geodata Layer we strongly recommend updating to IdevioMaps 5.5.3 when updating to Qlik Sense 3.0.

More information on the new versions of IdevioMaps  is available at http://bi.idevio.com/products/idevio-maps-for-qlik-sense and http://bi.idevio.com/products/idevio-maps-5-for-qlikview.

Routes and travel areas in IdevioMaps

Idevio now have enabled route based operations globally in GeoAnalytics in IdevioMaps. It makes it possible to use drive time or drive distance in operations, calculate travel areas (aka isolines, isodistances, isochrones) and routes. All easily available from the GeoAnalytics wizard within Qlik Sense or QlikView.

travelareas2

Travel areas based on 30 min drive time to origin.

New operations are:

  • TravelAreas – calculates areas with time or distance less than a specified value to the center.
  • Routes – calculates shortest or fastest route between an origin and a destination point.

 

In the Closest operation it is now possible to to choose between the transport modes car, pedestrian, bike, truck or bird. In addition to that it is possible to choose a length or time unit for the distances between objects. This makes the Closest operation extremely powerful for a large range of problems.

No update is needed to get the new features. Next time you open Idevio GeoAnalytics they are available there.

Take a look at the new Sales Location Analysis demo that investigates how good the locations are for the sales offices of a demo company. Locations are considered good if the population that reaches the location within 30 minutes is large and the uptake area does not overlap much with other sales locations areas. It uses travel areas and calculates how much they intersect each other and also how much they intersect postal areas with population statistics for finding population within the area.

More information is available in the GeoAnalytics documentation and at the Idevio BI site. Drop us an email at info@idevio.com if you have any questions.

New operations in Idevio GeoAnalytics

We have added two more operations in GeoAnalytics in IdevioMaps. You do not need to do anything to get them, they will show up next time you open up the Idevio GeoAnalytics Connector. The new operations calculate which areas intersect and how much they intersect and are called Intersects and IntersectsMost. Here is what you can use them for.

intersectsShare

Areas inside red borders colored by how large share is inside.

Use Case 1: Say you have your custom areas and want to find out how many people lives in them. You also have postal areas with population statistics. Then you can calculate the share of each postal area that each custom area overlaps using the Intersects operation. Then sum up the population times the overlap share for each postal area on custom area to get a good population approximation. This use case can be generalized to associate any statistics available on one set of areas to another set of areas.

intersectsMost

Areas associated with another area it overlaps the most.

Use Case 2: Say that you have detailed areas that you want to aggregate in larger existing areas but they do not quite align. To make the best out of it you want to aggregate in the area it intersects with the most. Typically postal area borders in many countries do not align with commune borders. Then apply the IntersectsMost operation on the postal areas and the commune areas and it will establish the relationship so that you can create a drill-down hierarchy with them.

Another improvement in GeoAnalytics is that the Closest operation now have an additional parameter that makes it possible to get the N closest objects to another one. As before it is also possible to limit by a maximum distance. This means that the Closer operation is not needed any more since all that it does is covered by the Closest operation. It is marked as deprecated and not accessible by the wizard any more.

More information is available in the GeoAnalytics documentation and at the Idevio BI site. Drop us an email at info@idevio.com and tell us about your geographic challenges.

Idevio presents Idevio GeoAnalytics

IdevioMaps now includes Idevio GeoAnalytics, which brings geographic analysis to Qlik. Via a connector with a wizard you get easy access to advanced geographic analysis.

GeoAnalytics1_banner
Typical things to use GeoAnalytics for is:

  • Find out which postal areas your GPS positions are in
  • Create custom sales areas based on smaller areas
  • Find out which service location is closest to each customer and number of customers per service location
  • Aggregate your point data in clusters or rectangular or hexagonal bins

 

GeoAnalytics is a toolbox of features that can be combined in numerous ways. Some features that previously were available via Idevio Load Library are now more conveniently available in the GeoAnalytics Wizard.

Download the new IdevioMaps 5.5 (available for both Qlik Sense and QlikView) to get access to GeoAnalytics. More information about GeoAnalytics is available here. More information on the new versions of IdevioMaps is available at http://bi.idevio.com/products/idevio-maps-for-qlik-sense and http://bi.idevio.com/products/idevio-maps-5-for-qlikview.

A good way to get started with GeoAnalytics is to follow the step-by-step guide to clustering or by looking at the examples.

This is just the beginning, there is more to come…

By the way, we have recently added postal codes for Mexico, Canada, Australia and Spain to the location service.
