Tech Tip:

How do I create a density or heat map of my locations?

Maptitude Density Grid Map of Physicians in Los Angles Area

A density grid is a way to visualize and analyze point data by transforming the points into a regular grid. Each resulting grid cell is assigned a value that is determined by the density of nearby points, optionally weighting each point using a weighting value.

Density grids are useful for showing hot spots of crime, mapping the concentration of medical providers, and analyzing the pattern of clients around a store weighted by the cost of their purchases.

This Tech Tip shows how to work with the Density/Heat Layer tool in Maptitude 2017.

Tricks & Tips:

Creating Grid Layers

Maptitude map with 5mi x 5mi grid layer

Grid cells enable detailed analysis and visualization of geographical patterns using identically sized boundaries for data aggregation, mathematical comparisons, and statistical analysis. These cell areas can be compared to neighbors or applied to distance analyses.

In Maptitude 2017 you can use Tools>Editing>New Grid Layer to create a grid. Grid analysis is widely used in real estate, finance/ins., and health services, with an example in this video: Expected Risk From Hurricanes.

In Maptitude 2017 we also support computing statistics for Moran's I, a measure of spatial autocorrelation particularly relevant to grid cell analysis. For more information see Help>GISDK Help or contact Support.
