We are all familiar with maps. We use maps every day to help us identify the location of services we require and our spatial relationship to those services. We also use maps to provide us with additional information about the geographical areas where we live, work and travel. Geomapping is a type of data visualization that uses maps as a base upon which to present data and its spatial relationships with other people, objects, services, events, and places.

Geographic visualizations are engaging and help to quickly identify served and under-served areas. These maps can be constructed to represent any number of different geo-spatial criteria and how it relates to the people who live and work within them. These maps can be a valuable resource-planning tool that allows agencies to identify needs and trends within the communities they serve.
