Location Mapping Software

Postby kitlode » 2011-09-27 07:26:18

I'm trying to find out if a mapping software exists where you can enter in
or download a list of cities/states and then have those locations
automatically marked (pin point or whatever) on the map. The end game is to
have the finished map integrated into a presentation. The current use has
about 1200 locations my rep wants to map - there's no way I'd want to
manually have to locate and mark that many locations on a single map
manually. It would be for locations in North America - primarily U.S. but
some Canadian locations as well.

For your case we would need geocoding to convert your location information to actual pinpoints. We usually do with Google Maps as they have geocoding service, and the map needs to be presented online instead of placing into a presentation (say a PowerPoint slide). The map would accept a list of locations from Excel, and store the geocoded locations in a database. Additional information can also be shown per pinpoint on the map.

Here is a sample which may be similar to what you need.

If your locations are divided into different types, we can use different push pins to denote them. Our developers are interested to see a sample of your data and estimate the cost based on your requirements. You may send us some sample data and the detailed requirements.
