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
- Flash animations for web pages and other HTML-based
- Animated GIF images for the same use or
- as huge format maps.
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.
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.

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.
