Generate Voronoi Polygon from the GIS data

Developing polygon boundaries from GIS points is an important geostatistical process. IGISMap provides a Point to Polygon tool to create polygons from the point of input point GIS data. Conversion of point to polygon in IGISMap is based on Voronoi theorem. These polygons are called Voronoi polygons. In mathematics, a Voronoi diagram is a division of a plane into regions close to each of a particular set of objects. The Voronoi polygon created for each point represents the area of influence from the input point location such that any position within the polygon is closer to that point than any other point. Here we generate Voronoi polygon from the gis data.

IGISMap is a web-based platform that powers many of the most important GIS applications in the field of geospatial analysis. The uniqueness of IGISMap in the GIS industry is that it’s UI/UX helps users to perform geospatial operations easily. In IGISMap, you can upload your GIS data and perform geospatial analysis.

In this article, we will see how to make use of the point GIS data from the IGISMap GIS data collection for creating polygon GIS data.

Merge polygons features online using IGISMap

In GIS data, a geographic area is represented in a polygon shape. Geospatial features such as administrative boundaries are digitized in the polygon vector model. In some cases, we need to merge the polygon features based on attribute values or location. After merging, input polygons will merge into a single polygon feature assigned with a single row to store attribute values. When the adjacent polygons with common border lines are merged, they combine to form a single polygon. Through merge functionality, we can create any primary-level administrative boundaries like national boundaries from the secondary level divisions like state or district level boundaries. So here in this article, we are providing steps to merge polygons features online in a single layer.

Merging is a common geoprocessing used in GIS projects for two important cases. One is to merge multiple GIS features into single GIS feature within a GIS data itself. Another application is to merge multiple GIS data into single GIS data. In both cases, geometry entity of the input GIS feature or GIS data should be same ie., either point, polyline or polygon.

IGISMap provides Merge Polygons tool to merge multiple polygon features of a polygon GIS data into single polygon feature. IGISMap is a GIS-based web platform, that provides multiple GIS applications that are most important in the field of geospatial analytics. The peculiarity of IGISMAP in the GIS Industry is its user interface which helps the user to perform effortless geospatial operations. Merge Polygons tool is very easy to use and you can merge the required polgons in just two steps.

Upload and view rendered raster images in IGISMap

Raster data in GIS are pixelated data format or images that are georeferenced. Here each pixel represent a geographic area storing the values of any parameter associated with that area. Parameters represented by raster images are mostly continuous in geography such as precipitation, elevation, temperature, vegetation indices etc. Raster images also represents categorical features such as land use land cover.

The conversion of an object’s geometry, color, texture, lighting, and other attributes into a display image is called the rendering of an image. It is the technique of creating a photorealistic or non-photorealistic image from a 2D or 3D model using a computer program. A geospatial raster is only different from a digital photo in that it is accompanied by spatial information that connects the data to a particular location. A raster image can be visualized in different styles such as categorical, quantitative, paletted, multiband etc. These visualization can be stored and saved, so that to be used in other platforms for image interpretations for remote sensing analysis.

IGISMap Upload Raster File tool can add the rendered raster image in GeoTIFF format. IGISMap is a GIS-based web platform, that provides 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, which helps the user to perform effortless geospatial operations.

Convert addresses from spreadsheet to points on Map in two steps

Consider a customer service manager working for a supermarket company wants to connect with some of their best customers for giving winning prizes and to promote their business. The manager has a list of contacts along with their address which is located all over America. In order to deliver the winning prizes to their doorstep, he has to find the best route which takes a minimum number of days to receive it. Hence he has to give the delivery partner the best route which is easier and less time-consuming.

In such cases, Geocoding helps to make the process easier. Geocoding is the process of converting one or more valid address with location details into GIS points.Geocoder tool of IGISMap can be used for converting address details to point GIS data in a few steps. You only need to upload the spreadsheet file with address columns and assign the address columns to start plotting. Option to review the plotting and edit the points are also available in this tool.

IGISMap is a GIS-based web platform, that provides 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, which helps the user to perform effortless geospatial operations. IGISMap allows users to edit the data table of vector data by editing the name of the columns, deleting the columns, and adding new columns.

Using Add GIS Data tool, you can these data in your map in IGISMap application iteslf and apply IGISMap tool to perform various geospatial operations. Data are provided in two lists for each country or US states. They are Administrative Layer and Other Layer.

Administrative GIS data are polygon vector data of administrative boundaries such as national outline boundary, state boundaries, province boundaries, district boundaries, counties, postcode boundaries etc. Most of the data in IGISMap GIS data are from Open Street Maps. Administrative level data are collected from various government websites and other authentic online sources such as US Census Bureau, Humanitarian Data Exchange, Census India etc.

In this article we will Add GIS Data and Proximity Analysis tools of IGISMap to plot the locations of bank in south Indian states, like the following.

Based on our requirement, we only need to map the bank locations of south Indian states. Even though there is no official South India or North India division for the Republic of India, cetain states are commonly considered as south Indian states, north Indian, north east Indian states etc based on their geographical position. Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Telungana, Andhra Pradesh and Goa are considered to be south Indian states.

Thus lets use the Crop Layer functionality to select these states from the data we added. For this, select Crop Layer tool and draw a polygon intersecting all the south Indian states, as shown below.
