FAQ

  • Is TargetMap completely free?
TM is completely free for all users that share their ReportMaps with all the community. Just make your map and publish it.
Otherwise, if your data is sensible you can keep it for yourself by choosing to be a private user.
  • Which countries/territories are available?
Here you can find all avaliable countries, their map detail and their cp/zip structure
available countries
  • Why are 1st maps reviewed?
All 1st public maps are reviewed because we want all maps in TargetMap library to be useful for everybody. It is not necessary to publish test maps as all features can be tested before publishing.
Also, after your 1st map has been approved, you will be free to publish your ReportMaps without futher reviewing.
  • Why do I have to pay to make private maps?
The aim of TargetMap is to spread knowledge among all users. We would be happy if anyone could use data from TargetMap to improve their own research and to jump to new conclusions. So, if someone wants to create a map for his privat use, he will have to pay a small fee ($195/year or $49/month) to help us maintain the service free for knowledge sharers.
  • I am a private user, is my data secure?

We are very concerned about security issues, so SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol is implemented to guarantee the security and privacy of your data.

  • I want to map my own data, what should I do?

You only have to upload your data in an excel file. Just follow these tips to upload your excel and you'll get your own map in a few minutes.

  • Why is not my country in TargetMap.com?

    Our aim is to have as many countries as possible in our database but sometimes it is impossible to get accurate maps of every country. We will try to add new countries from time to time.

    TargetMap is a collaborative tool, so if you have a map of a country that we do not have or improves one of ours, you can send it to us and we´ll try to implement it in TargetMap.com. We all will enjoy a better tool if we help each other.

  1. hi,
    I'm trying to do a wonderful on world's Tax Heaven but Caymans Island (for instance) is not on your possible countries. Is it possible to make another pinpoint by hand or should I try uploading my map on photoshop to do so?
    thanks a lot for your answer.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Hi,
    we are thinking of going to Caymans Islands to figure exactly where they are :-)

    We will add Caymans and other countries in next versions of our World Map but right now it will be faster if you add the pinpoint with photoshop.
    If you miss any other country just tell us and we will add it as soon as possible.
    We'll keep you posted

    thanks for the feedback

  3. It would be great to have New Zealand on the map. We are the same size as Great Britain and have 4.3 million people living here.

  4. Hi Lenva, sometimes it is difficult to find maps of all countries. If you could tell us where to find a good map of New Zealand (.shp), we would be glad to incorporate it to TargetMap.
    Anyway, we keep adding new countries from time to time. I can tell you that New Zealand is one of our priorities

  5. Buenos días, debido a mi trabajo con estadísticas de la UE, estaría muy bien si dispusierais de la zonificación en función de los NUTs-2, si es en función de los NUTs-3 todavía mejor. Entiendo que hacer una mayor desagregación conlleva disponer de la anterior. Muchas gracias

  7. Buenos días. Una pregunta: si pulso el enlace 'delete' en mymaps ¿ya no tengo acceso al mapa aunque este siga viéndose como mapa público?. Y otra pregunta si pulso en editar y publico de nuevo parece que se crea un segundo mapa, no parece que sea realmente una reedicción del anterior. Muchas gracias

    ReplyDelete
  8. hi hylafax
    1st question: public maps can not be deleted from public library unless you ask us to do it. It is because of security reasons. If you delete a map from "mymaps" you wont be able to access that map again.
    2nd question: You are right. What you do is an updating of your saved map. We will change the text to avoid confusion

  11. Hi William,
    only your 1st map is checked to see if it is useful for the rest of the community. We check the map in less than 24 hours. After your 1st map is accepted no longer revision is needed and your maps are published inmidiatly.
    Thanks for your supporting words

  13. Hi, 1st of all, thanks for the supporting words.

  14. Hello!

    Firstly, my congratulations for the excellent application! Very easy to use and very helpful!

    There is a small error in the definition of portuguese administrative units, not "Conselho", but "Concelho". :)

    Finally, during the creation of my first map, I made the publication and then did some editing. However, during these update, I had problems on my internet connection and was created a new map. I already deleted the oldest map from "My Maps", but it still appears in public area.

    https://www.targetmap.com/index.aspx?searchinput=portugal

    So, could you delete this older map, since it is duplicated, only some differences in symbology. The correct is the newest.

    Thanks!

    And continue the good work!

    Best regards,
    Pedro Venancio

  15. Hi Pedro,
    Thanks for your kind words.
    We have already deleted your 1rst map. Thanks for the tip.
    We will change Conselho for Concelho as soon as possible

    We hope you keep using TargetMap to share your knowledge.

  16. Hello again!

    It was fast! Thanks!

    I was now trying to create a map with data at the "Freguesia" level but, as there are villages with the same name in different counties ("Concelhos"), the geocoding is not well done. The ideal would be to do the geocoding with the portuguese "ZIP/Postal Code", known as "DICOFRE".

    You can obtain these codes from the data in shapefile of portuguese geographic authority (IGP):

    Portugal - Continental Region: http://www.igeo.pt/produtos/cadastro/caop/download/CAOP2010_Shapes/Cont_AAd_CAOP2010.zip

    Portugal - Madeira Islands: http://www.igeo.pt/produtos/cadastro/caop/download/CAOP2010_Shapes/ArqMadeira_AAd_CAOP2010.zip

    Portugal - Azores Islands:
    Eastern Group: http://www.igeo.pt/produtos/cadastro/caop/download/CAOP2010_Shapes/ArqAcores_GOriental_AAd_CAOP2010.zip
    Central Group: http://www.igeo.pt/produtos/cadastro/caop/download/CAOP2010_Shapes/ArqAcores_GCentral_AAd_CAOP2010.zip
    Western Group: http://www.igeo.pt/produtos/cadastro/caop/download/CAOP2010_Shapes/ArqAcores_GOcidental_AAd_CAOP2010.zip

    In shapefile, you can find the column "DICOFRE" with 6-digit code, corresponding to DI - "Distrito" CO - "Concelho" or "Município" and FRE - "Freguesia".

    It would be a great improvement!

    If I can help with anything else, say it!

    Thanks!

  24. Kind Targetmap,
    I am currently admiring the wonderful tool this site offers, and I really enjoyed using it for a couple of experimental maps (such as Radiation alteration in Japan after Fukushima accident).

    Have you considered the opportunity of adding a commenting-discussion space to each published map, in order to encourage questions, suggestions, comparisons? This would also allow users to better learn, from the reactions they gather, how to improve their maps and making them more interesting, better focused or precise in their creatio method!

    Thank you for your attention

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hi Alvy,
    Thank you for your kind words,
    Firstly let me say that your Japan radiation map, is awesome.
    About the discussion space, on our roster list is adding the twitter account of the map publisher, and a url trackback to allow him/her to post on which blog/url the map is embedded, so the author can choose to moderate or not the comments.
    Think that targetmap.com is global, and we haven't enough resources to moderate all comments about all published maps.

    Regards.

  26. Hi! Congrats, I like the application very much. However I see a missing feature, which I guess would be an important one, but I might be wrong..

    I think it would have been very useful if one could show another column's text data as the name label of pinpoints.

    Let's take an example. I have a business where I have to visit retail shops scattered around the city. I have their address and their name in separate columns. Currently as I understand there is no way to show the name of each retailer at its pinpoint/location.. what a great feature would this be.

    It would help sales people to plan routes and also it would be great when one wants to provide info for end users about retail shop locations. In this case one would just have to take a glance at the map, and see the location and the name of a retailer all at once visually without having to browse through a list of data!

  27. Hola! me gustaría saber si existe la posibilidad de ver 2 tipos de datos distintos en el mismo mapa; es decir, si en una misma zona quiero ver qué clientes han sido impactados por publicidad y a la vez cuántos han comprado (si hay unión de las 2 variables o no), cómo se puede hacer?
    saludos!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hola!
    Una manera útil de hacer eso es tener la información de clientes en la capa de pin points, y la información de las compras en la capa de boundaries. Aplicando una operación a la columna del excel correspondiente en cada una de las capas.
    Saludos.

  29. Hola Javi! muchas gracias por tu respuesta, pero a pesar de diferenciar una información por boudaries y otra por pin points no aparece la información, siempres es referente a los pin points; además los zip codes que no están en las 2 columnas a la vez no se refleja en el mapa; es decir que si impactas a un zip code que no ha comprado, no está pintado como que ha recibido comunicación

  31. Anonymous, we have this feature in our roadmap, but it isn't implemented yet. In TargetMap you can now get your votes in an Excel and upload it, or you can paint manually the votes in our feature Paint Map, creating a zone for "YES" and another for "NO".

  40. Hi!

    - You can export your image as a PNG and then you can print it.

    - Nowadays there is no promotion active, but you can register as a Not to Share user. You have all the options of Premium with some restrictions and you will be able to try it. In the case of Sales Territory Manager you will be able to create 3 zones.

    Thanks for your interest!

  54. Hello. I am having trouble setting a Pinpoint for the UK. In my Excel file, I've tried the County name (Buckinghamshire as well as Buckingham). I've also tried the city name of High Wycombe as well as Wycombe. I even tried London. None of these choices are working -- the Pinpoint shows up randomly in the middle of the UK. Also, my Excel file has Ireland with no county or city name. This is because our Buckinghamshire UK agent represents Ireland, but does not have a location in Ireland. When I import my Excel file, there is a pinpoint randomly in the middle of Ireland. How to fix this as well?

    Many thanks for a great product.

    speaking of Territory Manager, is it possible to have territories assigned with boundaries style instead of different pinpoint colors? It would be much clearer. Maybe it's an available option but I can't find it.

    1. Hi Roberto!,
      The thing is that getting low level detail boundaries maps free of rights is hard nowadays, that's why we decided to manage territories thru pinpoints, if the open data movement gets more momentum and governments release more free geo data, we will go for it.

      Thanks for your comments.

      It depends or what do you want to export. If it is only the image, if you are a Share user you need to publish your map. If you don't want to publish your map you need to be a Premium user in order to export your image. If you want to export to Excel a Sales Territory Manager you need to be a Premium user exclusively.

  68. I'm a bit frustrated with the exporting function (paying member). I would like to export/save a view of the US map I have created. I cannot get an all-in-one view of all the states in 1 snapshot. Next, I cannot size the map to my liking, instead there's a pre-set scale which goes from too big to small, nothing in between.

  69. Hello. I am sooooooo frustrated trying to use your site. What I am trying to do is to map a small set of data (about 200 data points that a coded by zip code) and then setup a map that I can present a URL during a meeting to have everyone look at the map on their local devices. I went ahead and paid for a premium account so that I could map by zip code, but it appears that I would have to pre-invite everyone to my map and have them register before they would be able to view it. I simply want to create a map by zip code and allow it to be public. How in the heck can I do that? I paid for an annual account already and am sooooo very frustrated!

    1. Hi,

      Sorry for the delay.

      We have to discuss this particular situation here because for now it is not possible in TargetMap. Our idea to solve your problem is that you can use your map interactive in your presentation, but you need to send a snapshot of the map for the people you want them to see it.

      Premium account was thought for people who need their information for private purposes, and for security reasons it can not be shared to the general public. Zip codes is only available for Premium users.

    2. No, it's not possible. That's why are public maps & data. For private purposes TargetMap offers Not to share and Premium options.

  75. I've been waiting for a few days for approval of my public map. How long should I expect to wait for a response? Thank you.

  77. Hello,
    I think your service would benefit greatly from a rating system. As of current, there are many maps of little public interest, e.g. "How I think political blocks will be in 2050" or other hypothetical and highly subjective maps.
    A voting system would, together with an order dependent on this rating (and, as present, also on recency), put maps of high public interest in the top. (Even better would be a system that takes user and/or data source source reputation into account, like the one used by the stack exchange network (stackexchange.com), but that would be difficult to establish).

  79. Hi
    Question about: "How to upload an excel by territory names when different territories have the same name"

    In Argentina we have the same problem, but I can not solve.
    The system can not import the column containing "province + department"
    For example, "Cordoba, General Roca" Each column works well as individuals
    Another solution know? Or does it not work for all countries?

    You can see the map in http://www.targetmap.com/viewer.aspx?reportId=37255

    Thank you

  80. Hi, I just purchased a premium account so I could map out a UK territory based on postcodes, annoyingly, I only have the option to paint/fill at county level and there is no finer detail approach. Considering I need to paint a portion of the biggest county of the UK, it makes the map extremely inaccurate. Very disappointed that I've spent $50 on something that I could have used any WYSIWYG vector editor to do more easily.

    1. Hi Eoin,

      We apologize for the misunderstanding. We'll try to make clear that you can create maps with zip codes but only on pin points. We don't have postal areas, so you need to upload an Excel with your postal codes and put them in pin points.

      Best regards,
      The TargetMap Crew

  81. Hi,

    I wanted to ask your assistance in finding the resources or to way to contact the publisher regarding his sources of data.
    The map "Skin tone degree by country (Luschan Scale)" by Khina12 is based on Luschan scale. The Luschan scale range is 0-36, when dark skin tone is around 36. The max value in the map is 13.6 so I don't understand what is the exact meaning of the data.

    Thanks, Dror

  82. Hi, first of all, thank you for this great project and congratulations for the big effort. Now my question.

    I'm trying to create a map showing the ancient celts territory which included regions from 4 different countries. I was wondering how can I select in one map, regions from different countries I mean, if that's possible at all...

    Or do you know any other workaround?

  83. Hi,
    I'm trying to import an excel file with Sample names and the Zip Codes they came from (Ontario, Canada Zip Codes) The zip code is identified as the geographical location properly and I've tried formats L6Y 5S9 and simply L6Y but neither work. After it "loads data", I only see a single point, not all my points and I'm not sure if this is only the first entry or what...? And all my entries in the table below the map disappear.

  85. Doesn't seem to work in Canada. When loading Excel data, with a postal code column in the Excel, it doesn't recognize the data. It says to highlight the column at the bottom but Postal Code is not one of the options.

  86. Hi... can you please help me out with making a map with names on top of the countries? I want to create a map with no numbers but with names of football players. How do I do that?

    1. You can have a column with names, another one for countries and you can use "Coverage" instead of sum or count. Then you use the section "labels" to put the name on the territories.

      Delete
    2. "Coverage" is not an option for me. I have Count, Sum, Average, Direct Value. None of them do anything useful for names.

      Delete
    3. Are you using Map my Excel or Value Typing? You have to use Map my Excel in order to be able to use Coverage.

      Delete
    4. Sorry Jurij, I forgot to mention: you have to select "Boundaries" if you want to use Coverage, it's not available for pin points.

    5. Wow... thank you a lot. This works just like it should.

  90. I am trying to map all of the land parcels within a neighborhood of Sacramento, CA. Can I use street addresses as the geographic reference column when uploading an excel file? The street address column I would like to use for the geographic reference is formatted like this: "3901 MARTIN LUTHER KING BLVD". Target Map can't recognize this format. How should I change it?

    1. Hi,

      First of all, thanks for using TargetMap. Unfortunately we don't have street address as a mapping option. The lowest level you can map is zip codes.
      Best regards.
