Makersite’s native mapping tools allow you to easily and quickly identify dependencies between suppliers, sites, products and impacts.

Let's look at mapping possible impacts. Open the layer menu and pick "Matter Flows". This is a view of how products flow across your supply chain.

There are three different types of maps.

  • Pin map
  • Choropleth map
  • Heat map

1. Pin Map

With the pin map you can locate a place on a map. For example pins are used to locate a production facility or regulations.

2. Choropleth map

A choropleth map is a thematic map in which areas are shaded or patterned in proportion to the measurement of the statistical variable being displayed on the map, such as population density or emissions.

The choropleth map provides an easy way to visualize how a measurement, such as an environmental impact, varies across a geographic area or the level of variability within a region.

3. Heat map

For density visualization is a heat map for representing the density of dots on a map. It enables you to perceive density of points independently of the zoom factor.

The choropleth map has different shading or patterns within geographic boundaries. The color of a heat map does not.

The Makersite map framework is open and extensible. That means you can built on it to do more things, for example, show disruptions from real-time events or monitor shipments.
