Among visual tools, TIBCO Spotfire® software has the leading location analytics capabilities, providing spatial analytics for everyone, and the depth and analytical capabilities you need to quickly understand predictions and optimizations through location. By automatically adding location context to your analysis, the Spotfire® system helps you drive new insights that would not be possible using traditional charts and tables.
Making analytics location-aware with TIBCO Spotfire X
If your data includes geographical components such as country, state, city or GPS coordinates, Spotfire automatically recognizes them as locations and can offer a rich, interactive map with fast drill down to corresponding data for instant analysis.
Add more context to your maps and find location-based insights by including other data sources and adding multiple layers of data to the map. You can even choose to see associations of your choosing based on zoom levels, from country, to state, to city, to neighborhood, to address.
A map is different than any other visualization in that it immediately connects data to quickly understandable real-world context. That simple fact often brings fast insight and understanding, helping you clearly determine how location (store layout, seating chart, human anatomy) relates to other data features. Maps are often best for optimizing routing and scheduling, calculating the economic potential of your route network, reducing fuel emissions, optimizing site selection, and much more.
Spotfire multi-layered maps are more powerful than those from other analytics vendors. As you zoom into each layer, for example, from the country down to the state, county, city, neighborhood, then the house level, you can choose to see associations of your choosing—not just the base map (roads), but data uniquely pertinent to that level.
Third-party base maps
TIBCO® GeoAnalytics batch processing can be used to turn addresses into latitude and longitude coordinates that can then be used in Spotfire and other location applications. It provides worldwide address-level geocoding, route calculations, step-by-step directions, and additional geo-processing capabilities necessary to geo-enable and analyze your enterprise data with best precision.
With TIBCO® GeoAnalytics, create even more advanced spatial analysis enabling mapping of your data down to the address level, calculating distances and optimized routes between multiple points, and computing trade or catchment areas around a location based on distance or travel time.
