How can we perform Proximity Analysis over Data by adding GIS data from the IGISMap?

IGISMap application provides GIS data based on countries, US states, and Global levels. IGISMap provides you with the Add GIS Data tool that provides GIS vector layers of administrative boundaries such as country, states, districts, provinces, postcode boundaries, and other geographical features such as roads, farmlands, waterbody, etc. These data present in the IGISMap application is available for more than 30 countries, 51 US states and few spatial data of globally distributed features.

The data present in IGISMap are mostly 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.

Proximity analysis is a tool that helps us to measure, understand and relate geographic(location) information with real world objects. Proximity analysis is one way of analyzing locations of features by measuring the distance between them and other features in that area. IGISMap application has the Proximity Analysis tool which helps you to filter the data using the attribute filter and/or custom filter. After adding GIS data to the base map, we can perform Proximity Analysis to filter the feature according to our requirement.
