Out-of-the-box SharePoint offers multiple ways to display data; however, there is no map view for geographical information. Virtual Map View fills this gap by offering users the ability to use Google or Bing Maps to easily display SharePoint lists or SQL data on a map.
By plotting information on a map, Virtual Map View provides a better way to visualize geographic data. It also enhances user experience by providing multiple columns of list information in addition to geographical locations. When you invest in Virtual Map View, you’ll benefit from its powerful capabilities, including the ability to:
- Display SharePoint Data in Map View
Allow users to display data points as markers in a Google or Microsoft Bing map using a SharePoint List or SQL table or view as the data source.
- Link to Google and Bing Maps
Integrate with your favorite mapping platforms. Virtual Map View interfaces with Microsoft Virtual Earth Map Web Services, as well as allows users to display data directly in a Google map.
- View Data on a Local or Global Scale
Graphically display data in a city, country, continent, or region to show demographic data such as sales, distribution, customers, or other statistical data.
- Display Multiple Marker Types
Denote different types of data with multiple marker types, including custom images. Additionally, Virtual Map View automatically displays the “best view” of all your data points when the map renders.
- Utilize Full Navigation Controls
Zoom in/out and pan to view markers. Users can hover over a marker for snapshot details or select a marker to display additional related information.
So what are you waiting for? It’s time to start maximizing SharePoint the best way, the Bamboo Way.
