Special Offer - Geographic Access Analysis Template 


To ring in the new year, we are offering our Geographic Access Analysis template for $99.95 (regularly $149.95) until February 28.  


This Microsoft Excel template can take a matrix of X and Y locations (these could be stores, customers, warehouses, delivery points, etc.) and create a comprehensive report showing which X locations are closest to all Y location targets, or vice versa.  It works with CDXZipStream Bing version or higher.  


The template first automatically determines if each address can be matched to a location in either Bing Maps or Microsoft MapPoint; you can select which mapping source to use.  If a match is found, CDXZipStream geocodes the location to determine its latitude and longitude.   These points of latitude and longitude are used to calculate straight-line distances between all combinations of locations.


Here is a quick look at how it works:
