Radius

Craig Perkins Jun 04, 2015 11:53AM PDT

I see there is not a radius tool. Is there a time frame or even plans to add one? To me this would make all the difference in the usability of batchgeo.

Hi Craig,

Please explain how you would use this tool and how it would benefit you? This will help our developers.

I don’t have an ETA!!!

Thanks,
Tracy

It would allow a service area map to be created..

I second Craig's need for a radius tool.
Basically we need to get 3rd party service techs to one of our 100+ locations. The 3rd party charges mileage if the location is not within 100 miles of an airport. So it would be nice to plot the airports with a 100 mile radius and see which ones fall outside of that area. Those are the ones that we know will get charged mileage.

A radius tool would be amazing! For real estate, sometimes there are non-compete's so when client's are looking for new locations they can't be within X miles of other existing properties. Also it would be great to be able to show possible locations and cull out the ones that aren't don't fall within a certain radius. Radius could be used to illustrate walk-ability.

It would truly be a great tool,especially if you would be able to designate a group of your points to show rings in increments (1/4 Mile,1/2 Mile & 1 Mile); groups would be excellent so that you can compare them. Showing them in outlined circles or shaded areas would be great!

There are so many benefits, and these are just a few I can drum up in a few minutes.

The mapping software we currently use but have to replace soon (it is no longer supported or updated) has a radius tool which we rely on heavily. In fact, the next mapping tool we move to will be a difficult sale to our staff if it does not have radius capability because they've become accustomed to it. We use radius to plot all clients on a map for a particular person in the field, and as they're planning their travel they can draw a radius around the city they are looking at to see how many are a certain distance away and how long they need to plan to stay to see as many as possible.

In my office we also use it when someone requests a unique list of data - everyone in our database within 50 miles of Dallas, TX, for example. We open a blank map, draw a radius around Dallas, and use it to identify the counties in TX that fall into that radius and then use the county data to find the people in our database that live in that area. It sounds like a round-a-bout way to do things, but it doesn't take long at all and works great for us.

Hi Lora -
Sorry but I do not think our tool is going to be able to provide the functionality you need. Check out CartoDB or ArcGIS Online. Let me know what you think of those tools!

Thanks!

Hi Craig,

We have a radius selection tool for capturing locations and ability to export. Make sure “Advanced Mode” is turned on. Click your tool and then you can select data that will appear below the map. You can copy this data and paste into a spreadsheet.

Please let me know if you have further questions.

Thank you,
Tracy
