Introducing.. Postcode Express and Postcode Professional Windows Desktop Mapping Applications April 2008
Postcode Professional and Postcode Express will turn your tables of data into knowledge..
..such as turning a column of values
..into colour coded thematic value map grouped into value ranges.. Just by selecting a column from a table and letting Postcode Professional or Postcode Express do the rest..
..such as turning a column of names or identifiers
..into colour coded territory map grouping postcodes together
..such as turning whole table
..into point map where each record from the table becomes a point on the map (available in Postcode Professional only)
To use tabular data in the mapping package place it into a CSV (text) file having as many columns as needed and a single header record naming those columns. Then use the menu option Table|Add|From File to import it
Then browse for the CSV file and select in the conventional way..
A dialogue window then prompts to confirm which column contains the postcode data, and optionally suburb name. (suburb name only used and required for more accurate point display option). The Postcode column is then checked for validity and any warnings are issued if necessary and the table becomes available for map operations.
Using menu option Map|Add|Values will load values from the selected table and column and create a colour coded thematic map..
..which will then arrange data in colour coded value ranges and you can see where you have the most, or least, of something.
With the ‘statistics’ window you can easily get totals for any selected area (in white as shown) simply by opening and clicking areas on the map to see how the total changes..
The same selection tool can also be used to group postcodes and define custom regions.. Of any size, shape and number..
And with your custom regions use Territory|Report to automatically summarise totals for regions against any table of values..
