How to style the point GIS data categorically

GIS helps users to understand patterns, relationships and geographic context. It benefit includes improved communication and efficiency, as well as improved management and decision-making. GIS combines datasets with maps, integrated regional datasets with any type of descriptive information or data. It provides mapping and assessment prerequisites for technology and almost every industry.

Visualization and intepretaion of data is what makes GIS a beautiful and interesting fields in data analytics. Science of visualization is the core essence in the art of cartography and mapping. Any type of geospatial features presented in the map with proper color combination, accurate size and location helps in better image interpretation. Quantity and category based representation of spatial features are the common visualization styles used in GIS.

IGISMap Styling Tools

IGISMap is a web platform providing multiple GIS applications that are most important in the field of geospatial analytics. The peculiarity of IGISMap in the GIS Industry is its UI/UX that helps the user to perform effortless geospatial operations. IGISMap provides the following styling tools:

  • Basic Style

Map habitat locations of endangered animals & keep track of their living

Wilderness without wildlife is just scenery
-Lois Crisler

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) states that endangered species are the species of plant or animal that are seriously at the risk of extinction. In this time of data revolution, data analytics plays a huge role in the field of environmental science and atmospheric studies. Keeping the record of the habitat locations of endangered species and observing the variations in their environmental factors will help the authorities to study the causes that threaten the life of these species. These observations can be further useful to prevent global extinction by rehabilitating their populations and restoring habitats. In the article we create point vector data in GIS tool.

GIS technology is an effective tool for managing, analyzing, and visualizing wildlife data to target areas where monitoring and managing is required. GIS technology helps in tracking the migration patterns, mapping biodiversity, and habitat suitability models which provide analysis for animals to locate their habitat locations in suitable environmental conditions. 

There are a lot of GIS applications available but IGISMap meets the requirements of the user to perform various GIS operations such as creating point, line, or polygon data; point to polygon conversion; splitting and merging the polygon; conversion between different file formats and much more. Consider a wildlife conservationist who wants to map the habitat locations of endangered animals in India and keep track of their numbers and other environmental factors of their living such as temperature, precipitation, food, water, etc. Create Point Data tool of IGISMap can be used to plot locations and point objects as a point vector data model.

Map habitat locations of endangered species

Users can rely on the Create Point data tool of IGISMap application to plot the habitat locations of endangered animals, like the following.

Options to edit or delete the attribute fields are also available in this step along with the option to add new attribute fields to this data. If you thought of adding more points to the data of ATM Locations, select the Back button to go to the Add Points section, where you can add more points and make changes to the already published data.

Option to update the data table as bulk is available in this section. Where the whole data table can be downloaded in Excel format using Download Datatable button. And to make the changes outside IGISMap, then upload the edited/updated spreadsheet file using Upload Datatable button and integrate with the same point data of ATM locations. 

After making all the changes in the datatable, let’s move to the styling section by clicking the Next button.

Style Your ATM Location Points

A map will become more meaningful if appropriate icons and colors are used to visualize the features of the map. In IGISMap styling options, Bubble Style and Icon Style are provided for point GIS data. 

In Icon Styling, IGISMap provides two more options – Basic and Category styling. For now, let’s make it simple by providing an appropriate pin icon for styling the ATM location points. And apply it on the ATM Locations data as follows.
