Tech Tip:
Creating a 3D Map of Hot Spots

3D Maptitude map showing peaks where sales are most concentratedMaptitude provides many tools that allow you to thematically visualize and differentiate your data. These include thematic maps and selection filters.

The 3D Map tool allows point data to be shown as "peaks" based on a field such as the weighted density of sales by customer. 

The following steps walk you through this task:

1. Choose File-New, choose Map from the New File dialog box, and click OK. This brings you to the Create-a-Map Wizard.

2. Choose the Map of my own data option.

3. Browse for the Excel file containing your data. Choose the sheet in the Excel workbook that contains your data and has fields such as address and postal code. Click OK.

4. Follow the prompts until you reach the Type of Analysis step in the Create-a-Map Wizard.

5. Choose the Density option and choose a Weighting Field. Click Next and follow the prompts. Maptitude creates a map of your data.

7. Choose the Density of Your Data layer from the drop-down list on the toolbar at the top of the Maptitude screen to specify the working layer.

8. In the Display Manager turn off the layer Your Data by clicking on the green check.

9. Choose Tools-Surface Analysis-3D Map, and for Field choose DATA. Click OK. Maptitude creates a 3D figure window of your data.

10. Use the tools and spinners in the 3D Toolbox to modify the 3D figure. For example, change the exaggeration value to make the peaks higher or lower.
