How To Map Addresses From Excel In A Few Easy Steps

If you want to map addresses from Excel there are a variety of tools available. These tools speed up the process, saving valuable time and effort.

Whether the addresses are from personal or professional lists, these tools allow users to generate a map. Once created, users can share their map with others.

The map is interactive allowing viewers to click on markers. Once selected the markers can expand providing additional information about the locations.

There is a provision for grouping columns together. This allows viewers to choose which sets of data to display.

Raw location-based data such as addresses can become interactive and accessible maps. This post will offer examples of tools that can assist you in making an icon map from a list of addresses.

How to prepare the location data

Locations displayed on a map use geographic coordinates. This means that each address on the spreadsheet will need geographic coordinates.

This is achievable by using a process called geocoding. Geocoding takes a text-based description of a location, such as an address or the name of a place, and returns geographical coordinates.

They are set out as a latitude-longitude pair that identifies a location on the Earth’s surface.

The text input can represent an individual address or multiple addresses. These can be displayed in a table.

The output supplies users with geographic coordinates. These can form the basis for spatial analysis or mapping.

Addresses can be input in a variety of formats, such as house numbers, street names, and postal codes.

It is also possible to include points of interest or locations from a gazetteer. Users may add geographical locations such as stores, lakes, and bridges by name.

Having obtained the needed geographical coordinates it is now possible to map addresses from Excel.

Tools to map addresses from Excel

Below are a few of the tools available to help map addresses from Excel, and guidance on how to use them. Some of the tools include instructions for using a specific geocoder.

MapSVG

This map is created with MapSVG

Import the data from a CSV file.

The first line of the CSV file must contain field names. Fields must be comma-separated, and lowercase (“title”, not “Title”).

Text fields that contain a comma must be surrounded with double quotes “…”. Before importing the CSV file create all fields in the ‘Database > Edit fields’ section.

Also, if importing the Location field, first choose the language of the addresses. Find this in ’Database > Edit fields > Location > Language’.

CSV formatting

MapSVG field typeHow to import from CSV
Select, RadioImport as “value” numbers or text “labels”. Whatever works best. Example: if there is an “area” select field with the following options in MapSVG: North:1 South:2 East:3 West:4 These would be correct CSV values area 1 2 East West
Incorrect CSV values area South-West 64
CheckboxImport as 1/0 or true/false.

Correct CSV values my_checkbox_field 1 0 true false
Incorrect CSV values my_checkbox_field yes no
LocationImport as “lat,lng” coordinates or as an “address” string. If importing an address it gets converted to coordinates. If importing coordinates they get converted to an address. And then both values (address & coordinates) are stored in the _Location_ field.

Please note that Google allows only 50 requests per second to the Geocoding API (which converts the address to coordinates). If importing many locations it can take quite a long time. Be patient and don’t reload the page. Also, Geocoding API has a limit of 2500 requests per day.

Correct CSV values location 45.1233, 56.9812 Main St. 1, New York, USA London Paris
Incorrect CSV values (coordinates are outside of the correct range -90,-180 .. 90,180) location 99.1211,199.2323
RegionsImport as a comma-separated list of region IDs.

Correct CSV values (on example of /geo-calibrated/usa.svg file) regions US-TX, US-AL, US-NY US-OR
Incorrect CSV values regions Texas, Oregon US-TX US-AL US-NY

Google Maps

Log in to your Google account. Go to Google My Maps.

In the welcome pop-up, select ”Create a new map”.

Click the text “Untitled map” to edit the map title and description. It is best if the title relates to the data, such as “vacation” or “clients”.

In the menu select ”Import”.

Select the CSV from your desktop. This will be the first data layer to upload.

Tip: Users can also import an XLSX file or a Google Sheet. It’s possible to upload a table containing up to 2,000 rows (see supported data formats and limits here).

After uploading the data, users must select the column(s) with location information. This places the data correctly on the map (e.g. columns with latitude and longitude information).

For this example, select the Lat and Long columns, and hit ”Continue”. Hover the mouse over the question marks to see sample data from that column.

Tip: If there is no latitude and longitude information, it is possible to use addresses in the columns instead.

Now pick the column to use to title the markers. For this example, select the Date column and hit Finish.

Users should now see their data as a layer in the menu, and their points plotted on the map. To change the name of this layer in the menu, select the text of the layer name (the default will be the file name).

LocalFocus

Turn addresses into coordinates

Note: Proceed to the next step if you already have a dataset with coordinates.

A quick and simple way to get coordinates for addresses is to use the LocalFocus Geocoder.

To begin, copy-paste the relevant cells with addresses in the text field. Excluding any column headers, users can do this with a whole column of data.

Click “Add to geocoder”. Now check the results.

If any addresses return as failures, check the language settings.

Does Excel or Google Drive use a comma or a point as a separator? Use the same settings for the geocoder.

Now the results are ready to transfer to the original table.

To do that, copy the results from the geocoder and paste the addresses next to the original data. Leave the first row empty.

In the first row, leave space for the column headers such as address, latitude, and longitude.

Start a map project

Now that you have a table with coordinates, you are ready to put the data on a map.

The next step is to add the data. An empty spreadsheet will appear.

Paste the new table containing the coordinates into the empty spreadsheet. The addresses will automatically appear on the map.

If no mapped points appear, check that the latitude and longitude columns are referenced correctly.

Maptive

Click the “Create your first map” button. Name the map, click “Continue” and you’re ready to start.

To map addresses from Excel, upload the Excel file into the platform. This will generate an interactive, customizable Google Map within seconds.

Select the columns on the spreadsheet that contain location data. Most of these are automatically matched based on the information entries.

Or choose one of these alternative methods to create a map:

  • Use the API to connect your data directly to the map for real-time updates.
  • Connect your Google Spreadsheet data to the platform. Changes made on the Google Spreadsheet will automatically be reflected on the map.
  • Start with a blank map and add locations manually one at a time.

With the initial map created,users can customize their map by using the tools provided. Maps can be shared, saved, or embedded in a website or blog post.

Mango

Users must first install QGIS, an open-source GIS, and MMQGIS. The MMQGIS plugin adds geocoding capabilities to QGIS.

Feeding it the list of addresses, will output a list of geographic coordinates.

Geocoding requires that the data is in CSV (comma-separated values). A CSV file is a spreadsheet without all the formatting and colors found in Excel.

On the spreadsheet, separate addresses into columns for “address”, “city”, “state” and “country”. Addresses in a single column should be separated into individual fields before geocoding.

For example:

Address: 630 Old Country Road

City: Garden City

State (or equivalent outside US): NY

Country: USA

If using your own data, you can convert the spreadsheet to a CSV file in Excel or any other spreadsheet program.

To map addresses from Excel in this way, open the spreadsheet and select “Save As”. Then choose “CSV (Comma delimited)” from the “Save as type” option.

With the data in the correct format, it’s now possible to geocode it in QGIS. In the menu bar go to MMQGIS → Geocode → Geocode CSV with Google / OpenStreetMap.

Click ”Browse” and select your CSV.

The geocoder needs to know which columns represent the individual address components. MMQGIS will do it’s best to detect the appropriate column names (and its best is often very good).

In some instances the column names may be obscure or written in a different language. Users can click on the dropdown menu and choose the correct column in their CSV.

There is also a choice of web services to perform the geocoding. Users can opt for Google or OpenStreetMap/Nominatim.

Ensure that the Output Shapefile path and the Not Found Output List path are valid. It is also important to have permission to write to that location.

To change the path, click on the “Browse” button, and choose the preferred location.

Geocoded results are stored as a Shapefile which is a collection of at least four files (.shp, .shx, .dbf, .prj).

The Shapefile is the de facto standard for storing GIS data. It is supported by the majority of mapping applications, including Mango.

Also stored is a second file containing a CSV of records that could not be successfully geocoded. These records usually have an incomplete address, spelling mistakes, or are in remote areas not covered by the geocoder.

Hit ”OK” to proceed with the geocoding.

When the geocoding is complete, address points will appear in QGIS as circle markers. If the base map is not turned on in QGIS, they will display as floating points against white.

This is normal and means that the geocoding is complete. The geocoded coordinates are now in a Shapefile in the Output Location.

Go to the folder containing the notfound.csv file to see which addresses weren’t located. In this case, an empty CSV is a good result.

Upload the Shapefile to Mango following these instructions:

1. Select the “Create New Map” button in the administration sidebar.

2. When the map is ready, click “Layers”, then click on the “Add Layer” button.

3. Now click on “Upload Dataset”

4. Here users can select the type of data they want to upload. In this example it is a Shapefile, so there is no need to change anything.

Click on ”Select files”.

5. Navigate to the Output Location and select the four files of the Shapefile generated by the geocoder. Upload them to Mango.

To select multiple files at once, press and hold Ctrl and click each file (⌘ + click for Mac).

6. Once the upload is complete, hit “Save” and Mango will process the data.

7. When the processing is complete, the Layer Settings panel will appear. Here, select a color for the points, and hit “Save”.

8. Admire the geocoded locations on your map.

Zeemaps

ZeeMaps makes it easy to map addresses from Excel or other spreadsheet applications. Copy and paste a spreadsheet into a form or attach a spreadsheet from Google Drive.

To upload a spreadsheet, select “Additions” from the menu on the map. Then “Add (Upload) Multiple Markers”.

Choose the “Upload Spreadsheet” option. A dialog box will open, allowing users to browse and select the desired spreadsheet.

Alternatively use the “Copy-and-Paste Table” option or the “Cloud Drive Spreadsheet” option.

The spreadsheet should provide location information for each row. This includes a postal code, zip code, city, state, country.

Users can have as many columns as is necessary.

Columns such as the ‘Name’ column will be utilized as a “standard” column. Information provided in other columns will add fields to the markers.

Spreadsheets can also contain the street address, city, state, latitude, and longitude. The more information there is, the more accurate the placing of location pins will be.

The header row of a spreadsheet is very important. It contains the names of the columns and dictates which information to use.

Based on the column names, ZeeMaps can automatically determine how to use the data in each column. It makes use of the standard column references.

When uploading a spreadsheet remember to assign the standard column headers.

It’s not necessary to use all of the standard columns. But do ensure that there is enough data for ZeeMaps to locate the entries.

At the very least, the spreadsheet should include a name and postal code column, or a name and city column. Any non-standard columns will be used as additional information attached to each marker.

Users can utilize the information provided in custom columns to search the map.

The Types of Statistical Maps and Great Examples to See

Statistical maps are a popular way to present various types of quantitative data. They display the distribution of the variable related to location.

Cartographers use many different methods to visualize nominal information. Their goal is to use the best design that communicates the statistics without misleading the reader.

It is important to understand the different types of statistical maps. This can enable users to interpret the data quickly and correctly.

This article breaks down some of the most common visualization techniques. It also looks at the process of statistical mapping.

Statistical maps visualization techniques

1.   Choropleth (Shaded) Map

Choropleth maps display data variations by using color progression (shading). This information is usually in relation to a particular geographic area.

The design allows a comparison of the variable patterns across a selected location. For example, it can display the vote distribution by political party per county in the United States.

Or it could show the unemployment rate ratios across different city areas. This data could be later compared with the crime rates across the defined locations.

There are three keys to the correct use of choropleth maps:

  • The measurement must be related to specific geographical regions. The reader will then compare the variable across the featured location.
  • The statistics cannot be raw data, but should make use of ratios and rates (eg. the unemployment rate per 100 citizens).
  • Use Choropleth maps for a continuous statistical surface. This means that the measurement applies everywhere within the area of study.

Great Examples of Choropleth Maps:

Percentage of Rural Population in Poverty in USA 2011-2015

US Covid-19 Confirmed Cases

Average Rainfall Amount in the UK

2.   Isopleth (Contour) Map

An isopleth map (a contour map) uses lines (isopleths) to connect areas of a region where similar phenomena or values occur. The isopleths can also separate higher measurements from lower measurements.

The spacing between the lines displays the rate of how much the quantity changes in relation to distance. This rate is the gradient.

This visualization method is used in maps that show relief changes over a certain area. The lines connect points with the same elevation.

Another typical example of isopleth maps is weather maps.

Meteorologists use contours to describe weather patterns. These include pressure (isobars), wind speed (isotachs), or temperature (isotherms).

Keys to the correct use of isopleths:

  • Isopleths connect only points of the same value.
  • Isopleths can never cross each other. The values on one side of an isopleth are all higher, and the values on the other side are all lower. For instance, on relief maps, the lines above or below the isopleth represent higher or lower elevations.
  • Lines are drawn for all measurements between the highest and the lowest value.
  • Isopleth values usually have the same interval.

Great Examples of Isopleth Maps:

Isopleth Map of Population Density

Air Pressure Isopleth Map

Sunshine Duration in Europe

3.   Dot Map

Another type of statistical map is a dot map. It uses dots to represent the density of variables.

Each dot can represent a single data point (one-to-one dot-density maps). Or they can represent a number of points or values (one-to-many dot-density maps).

Dot maps are an efficient way to visualize the geographic distribution of a given value. They can display population density, racial distribution across an area, etc.

Dot maps can work for both raw data /simple counts (e.g., number of farms) or rates and ratios (e.g., number of farms per sq kilometer). They are easy to read and highlight densities and clusters of the variable.

But it is difficult to retrieve specific numbers from the design. It would be time-consuming to count the individual dots to find out the exact number of the value.

Two key parameters for dot map design:

  • The graphical size of each dot

The bigger the dot, the smaller the space between dots. At some level of density, the individual dots will start to overlap each other.

Once this happens, it is impossible to discern any higher densities.

  • The value associated with each dot

It is important to calculate the balance between dot size and dot value. The best approach is to make the dots big enough to see them individually.

At the same time, the dot value should be small enough that even the area with the lowest values has more than one dot.

Great Examples of Dot Maps:

Spatial Distribution of Various Communities Across Chicago In 2000

Population Density Map

Brazil Racial Dot Map

4.   Proportional Circle Map

A proportional circle map uses a symbol, usually a circle, to represent the data value in a particular geographical area. The bigger the symbol, the bigger the measurement in that location.

One approach is to scale the size of the symbol in proportion to the number it represents. For example, a number twice as big will be represented by a circle that is twice as large.

Another method is to create a graduated symbol map. It may use a small number of symbol sizes corresponding to a small number of categories of value size.

The categories will then stand for a range of measurements. For exaple, city size categories could cover: <500,000, 500,000-2 million, 2-5 million, and  >5 million people.

This type of statistical map can be used to show the location and magnitude of earthquakes across a geographical area.

Great Examples of Proportional Circle Maps:

International Visitor Arrivals Per Country

US Oil Consumption

Indian City’s Population

5.   Pie Chart Map

When using a pie chart in relation to a geographic area on a map, designers create a pie chart map.

On a pie chart, the individual slices represent a percentage or numerical proportion of the data. They are useful for visualizing a smaller number of categories, around 8 or less.

When used on a map, it is possible to link the statistics with their corresponding locations. They can be also combined with a Bubble Chart (Proportional Symbol Map).

This form of design will add an extra dimension for visualization.

Pie charts are useful to express a part-to-whole relationship in the data. The whole pie represents 100%, while the individual parts make up a portion of the data.

This kind of map is often used for business statistics.

For example, if a business offers many services, a pie chart can provide valuable insights. It can reveal which service is most popular and how the data varies at different locations.

Great Examples of Pie Chart Maps:

Hispanic Population in the USA

Map of Scottish Wildlife Trust Reserves

6.   Heat maps

Heat maps use different colors or color shades to represent data variations. They display the level of concentration of the value in relation to a location.

Heat maps are not the same as choropleth maps. The data isn’t categorized by regions or geographical limits.

The focus is the concentration or the intensity of the value. This means that geopolitical boundaries are not relevant for these types of statistics.

Heat maps are often used to display weather and natural phenomena. By visualizing high-intensity measurements, they can communicate the most important data.

They are also used by companies to describe business data, such as sales.

Great Examples of Heat Maps:

Milliwatts per square meter

Customer Density Map

Important Steps In Statistical Mapping

Working with geographical and statistical data requires a systematic process. It includes the following important steps:

  • Enumeration

Geographic data needs to be enumerated. This process involves “a complete, ordered quantitative listing of all spatial data items in a data collection.” (University Consortium for Geographic Information Science)

  • Normalization

In this step, convert the measured value into another form of a variable that is easier to work with, e.g. a ratio.  This process eliminates the possibility of misinterpretation.

  • Classification

Group similar measurements together and create data categories. This process breaks down the information in a way that enables a clear interpretation.

Ending thoughts on the types of statistical maps

The examples of the different types of statistical maps show that cartographers need to understand the purpose of the data visualization.

Some variables need to be grouped in relation to geographical regions.

Certain maps show clusters or high concentrations of the value. Other maps create connections between the same measurements.

So cartographers must identify what kind of information they are working with. Then they will be able to find the best way to display it.

Get Yourself A Blank Map of Australia From This List

Australia is officially named the Commonwealth of Australia. It includes the Australian mainland, the island of Tasmania, and several other small islands.

It is the largest country in Oceania, which is a collective name for all the islands in the Pacific Ocean. And it is the sixth-largest country in the world in terms of land area. It is the only country that covers an entire continent.

Although anyone might be interested in a blank map of Australia, likely teachers and students will find this most useful. A blank map of Australia is particularly helpful in advancing someone’s knowledge about this fascinating country.

Teachers can use blank maps to test a student’s knowledge of Australia’s states and cities. The blank maps in this article display Australia’s international borders, state boundaries, and more.

Here are some aspects that someone might want to show on a blank map of Australia:

Borders

The world’s smallest continent, Australia is surrounded by the Indian and Pacific oceans. It is also surrounded by several seas.

The Timor and Arafura sea separate it from Asia. The Tasman sea separates it from New Zealand.

Australia is sometimes considered the world’s largest island. The Australian coastline measures about 35,877 km (22,293 mi). A blank map of Australia and the seas and islands that surround it is available in the list below.

States and Territories

Australia has six states and a total of ten territories.

Its six states are:

  • New South Wales
  • Queensland
  • South Australia
  • Tasmania
  • Victoria
  • Western Australia

Its three internal territories are named:

  • Australian Capital Territory
  • Jervis Bay Territory
  • Northern Territory

Its seven external territories are:

  • Ashmore and Cartier Islands
  • Australian Antarctic Territory
  • Christmas Island
  • Cocos (Keeling) Islands
  • Coral Sea Islands
  • Heard Island and McDonald Islands
  • Norfolk Island

The states and territories have their own executive government, legislative branch, and judicial system but the federal government can overwrite any territory legislation. For a blank map of Australia and its states’ boundaries and flags check the list below.

Population

Australia has one of the world’s lowest population densities. Australia’s landmass is slightly smaller than the United States but it has a population of 25 million versus the US population of 328 million. The state of Texas alone has a population of 29 million.

About 90% of the population lives on the coast of Australia because the interior of the country is mostly desert. The population has the highest concentration on the eastern coast. Canberra is the capital of Australia but Sydney has the largest population.

Australia’s population is also one of the most diverse. More than a quarter of the population was born overseas. And in 2019 every country in the world was represented in Australia’s population.

Geography

The large size of Australia produces a wide variety of landscapes. It has mountain ranges, rain forests, rangelands, and coastline.

Most of the geography of Australia is flat and dry. More than one-third of it is desert and thus is not suitable for farming. However, a considerable amount of land is used for cattle grazing.

The Outback refers to the unpopulated and arid interior areas of Australia. The Outback covers about 70% of the continent.

The Great Dividing Range is a 3,700 km (2,300 mi) stretch of mountains on the eastern side of Australia. This mountain range feeds two of the most important rivers in the Murray-Darling basin that provide water for millions of people. The list below contains a blank map of Australia and its rivers.

Nature

Australia is home to unique species of flora and fauna. Many animals found in Australia are not found anywhere else in the world. These include kangaroos, platypi, koala bears, and many more.

Australia has several national parks to protect its unique plants and animals.

Australia also has many beautiful natural attractions. One such attraction is Uluru, also called Ayers Rock. Found in what is called the Red Center, this rock stands 348 m (1,142 ft) high.

It is considered the largest rock in the world. The Great Barrier Reef, Kings Canyon, and Lake Hillier are other examples of the many beautiful attractions that Australia has to offer.

Download the Best Blank Map of Japan From Here

Japan is an island country in East Asia, located in the northwest Pacific Ocean.

Japan is bordered on the west by the Sea of Japan (East Sea), which divides it from the east coast of the Korean Peninsula and the south-east of Siberia (Russia).

In the north, Japan borders La Perouse (Sōya) Strait (which separates it from Russia-owned Sakhalin Island) and the Sea of Okhotsk.

In the northeast, Japan borders Kuril Islands (Russia held, previously under Soviet administration).

To the east and south is the Pacific Ocean.

In the southwest, Japan borders the East China Sea, dividing it from China.

The island of Tsushima is located between northwestern Kyushu and southeastern South Korea. It separates the Korea Strait on the Korean Side from the Tsushima Strait on the Japanese side.

Main facts about Japan

Official Name: Japan

Form of Government: Unitary parliamentary constitutional monarchy

Japan is the only country in the world with an Emperor. The emperor does not, in reality, hold much power. He has a more symbolic role but plays an important part in Japanese traditions.

Capital (and largest city): Tokyo

The Greater Tokyo Area is the most populated megacity in the world.

Population: 126,048,450

Japan is second in the World’s Life Expectancy ranking.

Currency: Japanese yen

Japan is the third-largest economy in the world.

Area: 377,975 square kilometers (145,937 sq miles)

About 73 percent of Japan is forested.

Regions and Prefectures: Japan is politically divided into eight regions and 47 prefectures.

The prefectures date back to the Meiji Period (1868-1912). They were established to replace the lands controlled by the Daimyo – powerful feudal lords who controlled the country prior to the Meiji Period.

Major Mountain Range: Japanese Alps

Nearly four-fifths of the country is mountainous.

Mount Fuji is Japan’s highest and most famous mountain. It is actually a cone-shaped volcano. Many Japanese consider it sacred.

The main five islands: Japan comprises 6852 islands.The main ones that make up the greatest part of the territory are (from north to south): Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, Kyushu, and Okinawa. And from the largest to the smallest: Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu, Shikoku, and Okinawa.

Geology: Japan has the 17th highest natural disaster risk.Because of its location along the Pacific Ring of Fire, the country is substantially prone to earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanoes. Japan suffers from about a thousand tremors each year. Most of them are minor and do not cause any damage. However, destructive earthquakes (such as the 1923 Tokyo earthquake or the 1995 Great Hanshin earthquake) occur several times each century.

The Best Blank Maps of Japan

Blank maps are very useful for illustrating specific points and learning objectives when studying geography.

Below is a list of various blank maps of Japan free to download and print. They include blank political, physical, and other kinds of maps.

Download the Best Blank Map Of Italy (Printable)

Before you choose and download your most preferred blank map of Italy, here are some interesting facts about the country.

Italy (the Italian Republic) is located in the south of Europe. Its diverse coastline is bounded by the Adriatic Sea, the Sea of Sicily, the Ionian Sea, the Ligurian Sea, and the Tyrrhenian Sea. They all are part of the Mediterranean sea.

The northern border of the country is shared with France, Switzerland, Austria, and Slovenia. There are also two countries within the territory of Italy- the Vatican City and San Marino.

The Landscape And Regions

The northern border is formed by mountains. The Alps stretch from France to Slovenia. The second mountain range, the Apennines, forms the backbone of the entire peninsula.

Italy boasts beautiful lakes. According to Encyclopedia Britannica, there are about 1,500 lakes in Italy.

The largest and most important lakes are Garda, Maggiore, Como, Iseo, and Lugano. They are found at the foothills of the Alps in the northern region of the country.

The coastline relief is varied, ranging from high rocky areas to famous sandy beaches.

The most important plain in Italy is the Po valley with the Po river running through it. The valley extends from the foothills of the Alps on the north to Venice on the north-east.

Italy is divided into fifteen regions and five autonomous regions.

  1. The regions include:
