How Does It Work? Create your gisChart in 4 simple steps!

Step 1: Choose a Region

There are about 50,000 regions in the gisChart data bank. It gives you access to all the regional data in the world. Therefore, it allows you to choose for instance, counties from New York, districts in Afghanistan or entire countries as a region and lets you visualize your data on these maps.




Do you have specific regional data?

Many companies, organizations, and industries have their own region-specific data that is based on special criteria, which may include, for instance, internal customer or sales figures. Using the region manager, you can very easily group and visualize this data, even on a transnational level. Presenting your sales figures in certain areas organized by zip code would be just one of many options available.

Step 2: Add Your Data

After choosing the region in step 1, you can add the chosen region’s data in step 2.




gisChart provides you with many ways to allocate your data to the areas:

Keyboard Entry or Copy & Paste

Simply enter your data using your keyboard or copy & paste it. Keyboard entry is particularly useful for when your data is on paper, when only a small amount of area data has to be entered, or when you would like to enter your data into your gisChart directly from the Internet.

Data Import

Do you already have your data in a file? If so, then you can directly import this file. gisChart supports various file formats, among them, Excel, CSV, and .txt files.

Step 3: Edit Your gisChart

In step 3, you can specify the type of chart and in what colors your data will be presented on the map.


In step 3, you will have the choice of many types of charts. Take a look at the following examples of visualization options available:

Heat Map | Bar Graph | Bubble Chart | Pie Chart | Text Chart

Moreover, you can freely combine different chart types with one another. The following examples demonstrate the various possible combinations:
