Using Maps for Data Visualizations

Displaying this type of information, however, in a map makes it easier to visualize where your clients are located. Information can be displayed on a map in Alpha Anywhere by using "Alternative Views".

"Alternative Views" are a way of displaying tabular information using different visualizations - such as a map or chart. Alpha Anywhere integrates directly with Google Maps, allowing you to leverage maps as an Alternative View to your data. The Google Map Alternative View can also be used to perform Geography Searches, such as computing regional quarterly sales or generating a list of customers in London, England.
