What is a Radius Map?

Radius mapping is the process of creating a circle around a specific point on a map, such as a city address or area latitude/longitude point. When it comes to creating a business operating area of interest, you can use a radius map to query imported data or to gather ZIP codes or counties for export.

Here’s an example of how radius mapping can be applied to a sales situation. Suppose you’re opening a new sales office in a specific geographic region and you want to target your sales efforts within 50 miles of your new headquarters. You can use radius mapping to create a visual circle that extends 50 miles in every direction from your office. You’ll be able to easily determine what data points (customers, stores, ZIP codes, counties, cities, etc.) exist within that circle. Consequently, radius mapping helps you to more easily visualize your sales opportunities, and more effectively deploy your sales staff and marketing resources.
