Article: SBS Launches Geo-Spatial Mapping

For immediate release:

Survey & Ballot Systems (SBS) announces ability to geographically illustrate member data for easy visualization of voting activity.

MINNEAPOLIS – September 15, 2014 – SBS a leading provider of election services and Internet voting systems, announced today that it will offer geo-spatial mapping capabilities for client member data. DirectVote Geo-Spatial Mapping plots member information, including voting data, into attractive, interactive maps for graphic representation and instant understanding.

“Until now, displaying member data and voting activity has primarily been through the use of tables, bar charts and even spreadsheets,” states Bob Claus, Sales Manager at SBS. “While useful, summarizing data in this way doesn’t always allow for quick realization of opportunities and insights. With DirectVote Geo-Spatial Mapping, geographically plotting member and voting data becomes a reality, allowing organizations to rapidly spot areas for participation growth and identify member trends.”

Features of DirectVote Geo-Spatial Mapping:

  • Plot multiple layers of data on to the same map – segment and filter for fast analysis
  • Create territory, radius, pin or bubble maps of membership and activity
  • Heat maps that identify trends and areas of strengths/weaknesses
  • See data at state, county, city, zip code, street or coordinate level
  • Exportable graphics for reports and executive summaries

DirectVote Geo-Spatial Mapping is available with SBS election services and voting systems.
