Statistics of the selection

To get more insights in your data, we added a statistic feature.



When selecting objects on a map or rows of data in a sheet, you can quickly see the Min, Max, Average, Count and Sum of the data. Select a specific column first for the data you are interested in.

This function is more advanced than the information given by Excel as a standard in the status bar.

The statistics window is available in E-Maps Advanced and Mobility.

Circle selections are standard in E-Maps Pro

New feature in E-Maps

From February 2017 First Element added circle selections as standard option in E-Maps Pro, Advanced and Mobility.

This feature is added on request of our users. Cirkel selections are useful to have spatial insights round a location. For more advanced selections, you can use the isochrones or isodistance selections. This feature is part of E-Maps Advanced.

Please compare the specifications of E-Maps Standard, Pro and Advanced to understand which plug-in version suits you the best. We are as well pleased to help you making the right choice or to answer any of your questions. Please contact Erik van Hunnik (via e-mail / 015 – 219 0885)

Excel E-Maps: your data will remain yours

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.

Project_overviewAnd 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.

Excel 2016

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.

New interface Excel E-Maps

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.
