What is Mappoint?
Since 2000 organisations used Microsoft Mappoint for quick geographic insights. Mappoint had background maps for large parts of the world. And Mappoint had geocoding capabilities. Mappoint had to be installed on a (network) harddrive.
Quick geographic visualisations and analyses of your own acces or Excel data could be made and even routing in several countries. At the end of 2014, Microsoft stopped developing MapPoint.
With the Excel add-in E-Maps, we have the successor of Mappoint. With advanced geocoding, maps in the cloud and always up-to-date, and nice analyses features like heatmap, choroplets and other thematic mapping. Even isochrones and routing are available.
Download a 14-day trial of E-Maps or order E-Maps in the First Element webshop.
Check our latest feature: thematic shading on your own imported map.
Import your own boundary map in shape format and join your data in Excel.
Select the data in the Excel sheet and create a thematic shading.
You may change the colours, the ranges and set labels.
Last step is to share the results as image or PDF.
Easy and less complicated
We developed E-Maps to produce maps and visualisations in Excel in an easy way. There are many ways to create noice maps and now we added the “Blank” background. With this option, you can omit the background and create maps with transparency (PNG of GIF) or just without a background map.
Heatmaps are based on point locations. The number of points are the bases for the heat map. Now, we offer a second feature to build heatmaps based on point locations with an attribute.
For example, the number of incidents at a postalcode location.
At the standard E-Maps heatmap functionality, activated through the button, only the point locations are the bases for the heatmap. This feature often is used when registring (GPS) locations. With the new functionality, we offer a wider range of visualizing your data.
More than 63.000 monuments in The Netherlands plotted on a Here map with Excel E-Maps. The X and Y coördinates were in the file that we downloaded from the ‘Cultureel Erfgoed’ (Cultural Heritage).

We added the funtionality to display the result of address matching (geocoding) as an extra column.
This feature enables you to check the quality of your addresses and location of the points on your map.
Preferably, a country code will be used in the data field: Country.
See the list of ISO3 country codes.
Addresses can be geocoded with Pitney Bowes Spectrum or Nokia Here.
