Visualize Your Address List

Pushpins on a map Onsite Logic was working on a project with a client recently where the need to visualize a set of addresses was going to be very helpful to the project.  Sometimes seeing something visually shows patterns and groupings that are not evident otherwise.

Traditionally, this would have meant getting a large map and stickpins and putting a pin on each address.

The modern equivalent to that is Google Maps and a tool we used called mapalist.com.  There are a few steps involved, but by exporting the address data from the database into a spreadsheet, we were able to overlay it onto a Google map that could be shared, printed or used on a website.

Best of all, MapAList is free and very versatile.
