The Power of Maps

The Power of Maps

The map is a powerful way to visualize data and tell stories. As the internet becomes more and more popular, it is a lot easier to share your maps than before. SuperGIS Server provides a powerful online platform for users to share maps and integrate various data sources. For example, recently, the Panama Papers event becomes a hot issue. And people want to know where the money comes from all over the world. With SuperGIS Server, you can publish a map showing the worldwide companies connected to a particular country by address (data sourced from the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists). By visualizing the data with this map, people can easily identify where the most of the money were at the first glance. This is the power of maps.

Data are just data. It is an art to visualize them and use them to convey important ideas and messages. The map is one of the most powerful ways to present your data to show patterns in distribution, and spatial (and even temporal) relationships among features.
