    Get started

    Supporters / Volunteers

    If your organisation relies upon members of the public or other organisations for support, then Mapsimise can help you visualise that data. We take your data and display it upon a Google Map to help your team target and group the relevant information, which comes in really handy when holding supporter events.

    If organisations are supporting your enterprise, then you can use Google My Business or what we call “Business Search” to find other organisations in a given location. You can search for similar businesses in a given area, meaning that holding an event or marketing for extra support is enhanced.

    By using Mapsimise you can map areas or territory that is managed by one or more volunteers, with easy colour-coding to show activity on a single map or multiple maps.

    Driving Education

    Your organisation may be focused on the delivery or enhancement of education services which can be very wide ranging, from managing an education setting to building or offering services to the education sector.

    Mapsimise can not only help plot relevant data about the services on offer but has the ability to overlay freely available statistical data about populations, performance of education provider and if needed, catchment areas, giving visibility of related education data.

    If your organisation is running or creating courses, then similar to delivering events for your organisation, it is likely you may have a need to map participating organisational data.

    Mapsimise Enhances Your Organisation’s Operations by:

    • Show Engaged Establishments

      You might be the type of organisation that offers courses to higher or further education. With Mapsimise you can map all your engaged colleges and universities, along with prospect campuses. As a provider of online learning services, you may offer regional offline learning events. With Mapsimise you can plot a course’s intake and manage the demand within regional territories.

    • Show Appointments and Field Personnel

      One of the great features of Mapsimise is being able to track appointments and build routes for individuals working in the field or holding appointments. If you are the type of organisation that is regulatory in the education sector and hold regular reviews at a school or education facility, then Mapsimise can help you easily build up a site visit schedule for each person running an evaluation of an establishment or setting.

    • Show Performance Data

      There is a lot of data related to educational settings and some of that is performance related. With Mapsimise you can link all the performance data for each educational establishment or facility and upload as a KML (Keyhole Markup Language) which will represent data about each setting in a single map view.

    • External Use of Maps

      Mapsimise enables your organisation to have key data mapped for given locations on a map. With this you can easily share relevant educational data by a specific location to a public audience. Such data may include school locations, catchment areas and performance.

    Delivering Health

    There are many ways your organisation may be delivering health services and support to families and patients as a Not-For-Profit. You may offer counselling, financial support, palliative or end of life support. As an organisation you may run events, hold fundraising activities and manage a host of individual and corporate donations. All this activity will create a data trail and this data can be mapped to see national and global activity by territory and country.

    Mapsimise can be used to display sponsors, donors, events, volunteers and many data sources together as layers, giving your organisation a comprehensive view of the world and activity undertaken.

      Help your team manage appointments and engagements with families if your organisation works in social care, using active route planning to build up the routes of a support worker.

    • Show and Track routes for field teams

      The demand of social care is more acute as we all live longer. Being efficient with time is beneficial and for your organisation managing travel time and routes means more time caring and less time driving.

    Working with Animals

    As part of your organisational activities you may have a focus on working with and supporting animal welfare. As you may know, supporting animal welfare can produce a large data trail.

    Mapsimise can help map and track data about pets, lab animals, farm animals and wildlife with supporting services and more.

    • Show Local Rescue Centres and Support Clinics

      Data makes up a huge part of tracking and managing responses to reports. With Mapsimise you can easily plot and track locations of different centres and organisations that support your organisation’s activity.

    Delivering Relief (NGOs)

    While NGOs have no fixed or formal definition, they are generally defined as non-profit entities independent of governmental influence (although they may receive government funding). If this is your organisation you may be working in many different areas to support civil society. Such areas may include environmental, social, advocacy and human rights work.

    As you may know an organisation defined as an NGO plays a critical part in developing society, improving communities, and promoting citizen participation. With all this activity in different areas it is likely a lot of data is produced, and if internationally then mapping data will act as an enabler to track activity. As an example, it is estimated that nearly 10 million NGO’s exist around the world generating a consistent level of support for humanity.

    Mapsimise can be used to help your organisation track, monitor and display data on a global scale.

    Import and Plot your Business Data on Maps

    Prepare your address-based business data, and let Mapsimise do the hard work of plotting it on a map. Be it contact locations, assets, properties, store locations, appointments - anything that has an address can be visualised on a map.

    Import your .CSV or .XLSX files from Excel, and tell Mapsimise which columns to use as address fields. We then do the hard work of converting the addresses to global locations so that you can see where in the world you are doing business

    If your data already has latitude/longitude co-ordinates no worries! Mapsimise respects your pre-geocoded data and will automatically plot it for you.

    Connect and Map Live Data from your CRM System

    Already managing your accounts, contacts and leads with an online CRM system? Mapsimise can connect to Dynamics 365, Salesforce, and Sugar CRM and display your live data on maps.

    There's no lengthy importing/exporting or synchronisation of records to get up and running with maps. Mapsimise enriches your data with latitude/longitude co-ordinates, or respects your already geocoded data.

    Visualise your business entities on a map, and open records in your connected CRM. Perform spatial queries on your data and push results back into CRM marketing lists/campaigns.

    Draw Shapes to Filter your Data

    Use Mapsimise's drawing tools to perform spatial queries on your data. From a simple box to an entire outline of a territory, it's easy to filter your data based on distance and area. No more guesswork using postal codes or area names! Combine shapes to create complex filters.

    Use widely-available KML files containing predefined shapes such as state and postal code boundaries, countries, school catchment areas and more to narrow down your queries.

    Examples of spatial filters made simple with Mapsimise:

    • Find all my customers within 5 miles of

    • List all my properties within half a mile of

    • Give me all assets located in or

    Collaborative Team Working with Mapsimise

    Manage data and access security roles with Mapsimise

    Mapsimise makes working with maps a collaborative and flexible experience. Set up a map with multiple layers of connected or imported data, then all team members can create unlimited views against that map. All shapes, data filters, KML regions, routes and visual themes/effects are saved in a view.

    Share your map views with other team members, either as view-only or with edit permissions. Add notes to the map to highlight points of interest to your team.

    Share your maps with the world by making map views publicly available via links or website embedding.

    Calculate and Optimise Driving Routes

    Combine your business data with the power of Google Maps to plan driving routes between appointments, salesperson meetings, deliveries - in fact, anything with a start time and a location!

    Mapsimise takes routing further with fully adjustable visit start times and durations for each leg of your itinerary. Re-order visits by dragging and dropping.

    Auto-routing lets you take a selection of filtered records and plot them automatically, optimising by route or respecting the start times from your dataset - allowing you to best-fit your appointments or deliveries to a route and a schedule.

    Search Business Data

    Mapsimise allows you to search worldwide for arbitrary locations by postal code, street name, city, points of interest and more. You can add these locations to a driving route, or create a filter from them (for example: all my customers within 10 miles of LaGuardia)

    We've also leveraged the power of Google Business search to put the details of millions of businesses at your fingertips. Need to find a restaurant or hotel while planning a salesperson's itinerary? Or be able to recommend locations nearby to an existing customer? Your users can find what they need without leaving the Mapsimise interface.

    Targeted Marketing with Mapsimise

    Harness the power of Mapsimise's spatial filtering to enhance your mailing lists. Connect to leading digital marketing platforms such as Dotdigital and Mailchimp to send marketing materials to contacts you have identified using the Mapsimise toolset.

    If you've already built your marketing workflow in your connected CRM system, you can push your filtered records back into Dynamics 365 Marketing Lists, Salesforce Campaigns, and SugarCRM Target Lists at the click of a button.

    Use Data Filters to Refine your Maps

    Before you can work with your data spatially, it's important to make sure you're working with the correct subset of data, especially when dealing with tens of thousands of records.

    Mapsimise has a powerful query builder that lets you filter on names, dates, numbers, yes/no fields and more. Use AND and OR groupings to build complex queries.

    If you need to use a particular query frequently, Mapsimise lets you set up Quick Filters that are always displayed at the top of your map. For example: a date range for displaying appointments, or a dropdown of types of customer.

    Use Pin Variations to change the icon, shape, and colour of your map markers according to fields on your data. For example: colour-coding your global opportunities by closure probability.

    Geospatially Analyse your Data

    Use clustering to help visualise where you have large collections of data by grouping markers together. Analyse this further by using heatmaps, which provide a striking visualisation of the spatial weighting of your data.

    Proximity filtering gives you the ability to compare distances between two of your data layers. Mapsimise provides several options to help visualise the proximity of records.

    Some examples of proximity filtering:

    • Show customers within 10km of my stores

    • Which gas stations are closest to which depots?

    • Which engineers are closest to my current callouts?

    Location Intelligence (LI)

    Location intelligence (LI), or spatial intelligence, is the process of deriving meaningful insight from geospatial data relationships to solve a particular problem.

    Explore Mapsimise Themes

    Mapsimise has a selection of more than ten map styles to help enhance the experience of your users and customers. Amongst the available styles are dark maps for light sensitive conditions, as well as themes that cater for colour blindness. This screenshot reel shows just a few of the available map styles.

    Mapsimise UI

    The Mapsimise user interface has been designed to cater for its numerous functions and features without taking focus away from what's most important - your data on a map.

    Out of the box, Mapsimise gives the user a selection of two UI themes: Dark and Light. The Light theme is more traditional, while the Dark theme brings a modern look and helps reduce eyestrain through prolonged use.

    Mapsimise uses cutting-edge web standards to make the app available on desktop and mobile devices, so you can map your data wherever you are.

    How we use layers to map your data

    Mapsimise uses a layering system to merge data from different sources onto your maps. We then underlay regions from KML files and overlay your planned routes to bring all of the functionality together.

    • Plan routes for field operatives

      Plan routes between entities manually or automatically, then see the route overlaid on your data.

    • Connect and plot business data

      Every business entity you want to see on a map has its own layer. You can set up as many data layers as your need, and re-order them to show business-critical entities on top.

    • Use KML regions to filter and augment your data

      Import KML files to display regions and placemarks on the map alongside your data. Manage territories by filtering your data by selected regions.

    • Powered by Google Maps

      Mapsimise is built on top of the best-in-class Google Maps interface, providing familiarity for your users and allowing Mapsimise to leverage theming and Street View.

    How our map embedding works

    Mapsimise allows you to embed your customised maps into your website, intranet, or business web applications. You can also share maps internally and publicly via clickable links. Each shared map has a range of options to customise its look and feel. See some embedded map examples below, all using live data from our Mapsimise demo.
