An organization that uses SharePoint to track and share performance metrics, such as a retail enterprise investigating sales by region or store, can display those statistics graphically on a map. Symbology can be selected to display each store as a low-, medium-, or high-performing location based on pre-selected values.
This mapped data reveals patterns and trends not visible in tabular data, making it a powerful but easy-to-use analytic tool. For example, a map may reveal where stores are competing with one another, negatively impacting sales for both locations. Another map might expose where a business' best customers exist and identify other locations to reach similar demographic markets.
