It's also a useful tool for route planning and a powerful presentation aid when making a pitch to management, investors or other stakeholders.

Benefits of Census Mapping

You may think you know your customers and the territories you serve, but in today's data-driven economy, intuitive or received wisdom is no longer enough. To make smarter, more pragmatic decisions, you need hard information from reputable sources. When it comes to demographics, official census data is the most reliable standard for information about a neighborhood. Census data lets you know what a sales territory looks like today, how it's changed over time, and what it may look like in the future.

Mapping census data onto an interactive map is one of the best ways to make use of this business-critical information. When you present information in a visual format, it's easier to spot trends and identify demographic pockets that aren't visible when dealing with customers in person. A census map is an objective format for analyzing objective data — one that can be customized and filtered to meet the needs of your business.
