Save your map project in Excel
The most wanted feature in Excel E-Maps is available now in E-Map Pro. Save your map layers, points, heatmap, thematics in a Project file.
The project file (a file with emp-extension) opens your Excel file where you based the map on and it generates all the layers again. The geocoding is done automatically, with the latest address, the creation of the thematic map as well as the labels. A Project saves you time and gives you the same map.
See how it works on youtube.

Your contacts, customers or other valuable information can be plotted on a map. You can combine the information in seperate layers which makes the map even more valuable to you.
And it should be yours only! There are ‘low cost’ or ‘free’ plotting services available on the web. Many of them use Google ™ or Bing ™ background mapping and geocoding services. But these services very often store your information. Your valuable information even becomes their property according to their terms and conditions. These services can use your information and your relationship with other information for any purpose, like marketing and advertising.
We feel that your information belongs to you! That is why we enable you to plot as often as you like, without storing the geocodes or the coordinates you used on our side.
And if you do not wish to geocode every time you want to create a map, just use the project file. The geocoding and thematic shading is done automatically for you.
note: Geocoding and mapping in Excel E-Maps is based on Here ™.
Here ™ does not relate data to you. That is why E-Maps uses Here services, the highest standard in routing, mapping and geocoding.
With the new release of Office 2016, E-Maps has been tested as plug-in for the new version of Office. All functions work correctly. The interface is slightly different, due to the grey background in Excel 2016. You can use your current registration for E-Maps in Excel 2016. See the differences in interface below (2016, 2013, 2010 and 2007). See as well the updates and release history of E-Maps.

We have added new video tutorials and instructions on YouTube. The tutorials help you to learn more about the functionality of E-Maps. If you subscribe to the YouTube ExcelMaps channel, you will be notified automatically when new video’s are available.
Excel E-Maps 2.0 has a new interface. The ribbon has the new look and feel of the most modern Office and Windows applications.
Even more important is that we have reduced the number of clicks. From addresses in your Excel sheet to a nice thematic map is done through one menu and one sequence. This is good news for the novice GIS users that want to create great looking maps within Excel.
From now on, we made it possible for you to plot more points in the free trial version of Excel E-Maps. This means better understanding of the possibilities and features of the Excel plug-in.
You can plot the address or postal codes in batches of maximum 2.000 per time, per layer. The total number of points you can plot in the free trial version is 5.000.
Remember that plotting points on a map can also be done by coordinates, if you have them. Plotting on a map by using a full or a partial address or a postal code in Excel E-Maps is named geocoding. The good thing is, you can use it worldwide!
In the paid, full version, geocoding is not limited, but based on fair use.
Excel E-maps has a new bar chart or column bar graph function. The bar chart has vertical rectangular bars with lengths proportional to the values that they represent.
The size, color and transparancy can be adjusted.
Dutch newspaper ‘Algemeen Dagblad’ has publicised her annual hospital test. You will find the results plotted on a map where you can find this years’ score in the outer circle and the results of 2013 in the inner.
Explanation of the used colors: The redder, the worse, the greener the better the score. In E-Maps we used two thematic maps with different diameter on top of each other.
Visualize your data with piecharts.
We revealed our feature for current and new customers.
All new and current customers will receive the feature automatically when updating or ordering E-Maps in September.
The colour and size of the piecharts can be adjusted.
