1. Map of Utilities in Honolulu

This sample map of utilities in Honolulu shows the locations of Utilities, Sewer Fittings, Main Sewers and Lateral Sewers. It is an excellent example of using the line feature in the Map Editor app and rendering a large amount of data in a map. When you click on a line, you can get additional information that can also be updated directly from the field using the Mobile Data Collection app.

2. Map of Brazil

This awesome Map of Brazil shows a large amount of data on urbanization, points of interest (parks, zoos, bars & restaurants, bookshops, nursing homes, police stations, post offices…), population in different areas, female/male ratio and various buildings.

There’s also a land use layer with different categories; commercial, forest, industrial, military, nature reserves, roads, and railways; natural inventory (beaches, trees, volcanoes); vegetation layers as well as waterways. Even though this beautiful map contains many features, you can see that the data renders quickly.

3. Pima County Distribution of Residential Property

“This map attempts to visualize Pima County’s respective distributions of residential property that is owner-occupied and residential property that is not. The latter category consists almost entirely of rental property, but also includes a few other instances of a non-owner-occupied property, such as vacation homes, certain group homes, and bed-and-breakfasts. It is represented in orange; the owner-occupied property is represented in blue.”

The map was created by our user Luke Knipe who also shares some of his work on his blog.
