Step 2: Import your data

Point mapvision to the data you want to map via the "Import" button on the top menu.

Within the "Import" dialogue box, you have 3 ways to select the data you want, either:

  1. Browse for the data on you PC
  2. Drag and drop an Excel or CSV file onto the drag and drop section or
  3. Copy and paste the data as text into the paste box

Then click "Upload"

The import menu

Step 3: Select the kind of map you'd like

A new set of options will appear at the bottom of this dialogue box. For your import you'll need to specify:

  1. The type of map you'd like, either:
    • A "Catchment" map which will display values over a defined area or
    • A "Point set" map which will display set points on a map
  2. How your data specifies areas, known as the "Geocode type". In most cases this will be a postcode area (for example: YO), postcode district (YO23), or a postcode sector (YO23 2)
  3. Which column in your data holds this "geocode"

Then click "Import" and once this process is complete click on "Add to map" and you will now have a complete geocoded data map.
