Since we at Mapsynergy grew up in the Commercial Real Estate mapping world we thought it would be useful to share some of the things we have learned over all of these years.
Commercial Real Estate Mapping
So with this being the first of many posts to come where do we start? While blazing our own GIS path in CRE we found that if you don’t keep thing simple you lose your audience. Easier said than done right?
Start with this rule. If the map you are making can’t be easily understood by your primary audience without an explanation you failed.
So how do you do this? Simplify your map. Make the colors and symbols easy to read and understand. If your map needs a little help due to the many items you have in your map, use a small but comprehensive legend. Aim to have your map be understood without a legend. Then you only lean on it when you need it.
While that is a great place to start we have much more to share with you. Everything from map basics for CRE to how to apply all that good non map info out there in new ways and impress your clients.
