Add data with our Spotzi data app


Another easy method to add data and maps to the Mapbuilder is by using our Spotzi Data App. This application allows you to insert a specific sets from our data partners. This application is not a standard feature with our Mapbuilder.

To get started open the Spotzi Data app. This app can be found underneath the search bar. If you don’t have a map yet, you can create a map from scratch. To know how to do this, scroll down to the ‘create map’ section or click here.

When you open up the Spotzi Data app, you can narrow down your search results by selecting the following:

  • Selection of the source
  • Selection of the category
  • Selection of a sub-category

For example. When you select the Spotzi source, you can choose the category demographics. This will give you all the demographical information Spotzi has. When you want to narrow it down to just the number of males in an area, you can select the subcategory male population. This will give you all the information in regards to the male population in a dissemination area.

The Mapbuilder guides you through this process. First you can choose the source of the data. When this is chosen a second dropdown menu appears. This is the category drop down.
