Elaboration of thematic maps

The elaboration of thematic maps is our main working content. These maps are usually based in a basic administrative map, in our case of the counties, continents or the entire world. For the most of us was the graphic evaluation of election bailouts the first contact with geo-referenced data, today the usual presentation form if there is the geographical aspect important for any result, for example the presi-dential elections in the United States of America, or to visualize the different values of an indicator comparing different states. The map on the right side is an example and demonstrates the use of a natio-nal unique identification number in the corresponding countries in general and in the passports as a special characteristic. The different colour shows the different use of this identification number.

The results of our work - your thematic maps - are usually ready in less than 7 days. These maps can be used later in the following manner:

  • In PowerPoint presentations as graphic, also as animated graphic, (This includes also other presentation software)
  • As graphic for illustrations in documents for printouts or electronic publishing,
  • Flash animations for web pages and other HTML-based documentations,
  • Animated GIF images for the same use or
  • as huge format maps.


Use cases

We have prepared the maps for all world regions and the entire world. But mainly we are working country oriented, including the possibility to go to a lower level, mapping regions of a country. For the mapping there are two different forms, the mapping in grouped scale or in direct concordance with the indicator to map. The following both graphics are demonstrating the difference.

Grouped visualization

Direct scaled visualization

Both maps are demonstrating the same content, but there is the difference in the value treatment - grouped or directly scaled. Advantage of the grouping procedure is the possibility to recognize similar values easier, meanwhile the direct evaluation shows also the difference between the values in the same group - in the example, the homicide rate of Argentina is the double as the same indicator in Uruguay - grouped they are in the same range, directly evaluated the recognize the difference.

For huge numbers of areas to evaluate appears to be better grouping the values of the mapping indicator, for smaller numbers of areas is the direct scaled evaluation more expressive. We can offer you both possibilities, according to your specifications.

These bi-dimensional diagrams – colouring the corresponding area in the corresponding colour is the most used for geo-referencing data. All prices we are displaying in the data set of the countries we have included until the moment are based on this type of diagram map.


Complex graphical map example

Additionally there are other types of diagrams, like the one we have displayed here. Here are the time series of criminal activities in the provinces of South Africa placed on the corresponding geographical area. This type of diagrams is very “eye catching” and a good possibility to link numbers with geographic area. These type of graphics is more time consuming in the production and therefore more expansive in the price. The here shown was developed for a slideshow, using so lower resolutions and easier. This type of preparation is possible to use in slideshows, technical reports, etc. For a printing house the resolution must be higher and is therefore again more expansive.

Consult us for the price of the problem you like to map, and see the solution with your logotype!

In dependence of the complexity and the preparation work the price can oscillate between 100 and 350 € per diagram. There discounts in function of the number of maps possible.
