Improved Void Analysis workflow

We’ve heard direct user feedback requesting the Void Analysis workflow to be easier to use and understand. In the improved and simplified Void Analysis workflow, you can now easily determine if a void exists in a few steps:

  1. Set or expand the reference area, populating a simplified one-click analysis.
  2. Select a popular list of variables or a custom list of your own.
  3. View your results immediately.

Identify site difference with the Interesting Facts infographic panel

Understanding an area of interest is vital to gaining a competitive edge. Easily identify whether your area of interest is significantly different from standard geographic areas, such as the whole country, states, counties, or ZIP codes. Based on the statistical data collected, you can now see distinguishing facts about an area’s data in interactive infographic tables and word clouds.
