Your data + Mapfluence = business insight
Mapfluence lets you embed geographic technology to uncover new business insights. The Mapfluence API provides easy integration and flexible development with access to everything from base maps to spatial analysis to our industry-leading on-demand data catalog. Check out the Features section to learn more.
On-demand Data Catalog
The Mapfluence Data Catalog contains 10,000+ variables, indexed and available. This includes commercially licensed data from providers like Nielsen and Acxiom, proprietary UMI-created data such as mass transit and neighborhood boundaries, and UMI-curated open data like GDP and unemployment. Explore our data catalog to learn more.
Custom Data Sourcing
Leveraging Urban Mapping's deep experience in identifying, normalizing, transforming and maintaining data, we excel at the design of data. This wide range of data skills allows Urban Mapping to curate sources from noise pollution to demographics and everything in between.

The Mapfluence basemap is unique in that individually-rendered layers are composited on-the-fly, creating a customized 'map sandwich.' We employ state-of-the-art web technologies to ensure high availability and fast load times from anywhere in the world. Because the Mapfluence basemap was designed with an eye to layering data on top of the map, we embrace the philosophy of less is more. This translates to muted basemap styles that accentuate values and overlays while minimizing visual complexity. Customize typeface, line thickness, fill type and over 20 different elements.
Effective map design means more than producing elegant images on a screen. This means developers and end users can focus on deriving meaning from maps, not building them. Our cartography services remove the nuances of map scale, label occlusion, projections, default colors, styles and myriad other details that go into mapmaking, allow you to focus on your business.
Defining national and regional boundaries involves finesse and sensitivity to cultural and political issues. Localizing place names is far more than an exercise in translation. With a world of experience, Urban Mapping applies local conventions and standards to ensure visualizations are represented in the ways that locals intend.
By integrating a broad collection of curated data from our on-demand data catalog, including macroeconomic statistics, income, housing, ethnicity, household composition, education, public transportation infrastructure, pubic health data, national economic and social indicators, developers can instantly build applications that leverage the power of Mapfluence. Because embedded geographic technology integrates software with data, 'out of the box' offerings are an essential component of the platform.
Map visualizations, collectively known a thematic maps, fall into several types: point, choropleth, heat map, kernel density and more. It is important to note that mixing incorrect map types with data can lead to flawed interpretations. Mapfluence helps you understand your data and how to best represent it.
Looking at exogenous or well-understood data on a map or a report is helpful, but mashing it up with your organization's data changes the game — bring your own data to Mapfluence, and you can visualize, analyze and perform spatial operations to gain insight.
Access to high resolution satellite and aerial imagery, seamlessly stitched, continuously updated with up to 30 cm resolution.
Mapfluence supports address-level geocoding (the process of converting a human-readable address to latitude-longitude) and reverse geocoding. We also have support for 'place geocoding,' which involves resolving a well-known geographic name (postal code, country, congressional district, telephone area code, etc...) to a location on the map. This can be very helpful for sales territories that are defined by collections of well-known places. Mapfluence supports address-level geocoding for multiple regions, including many in North America, Europe and Asia.
While creating thematic overlays on a map offers compelling visualizations, Mapfluence goes further. Leveraging our state of the art mapping technologies, we are able to offer customers functionality they need to get the job done when creating reports. Point in polygon calculations, aggregating statistics, column-based sorting and filtering focus users on what they need to know.
Advanced Spatial Analysis
Building on our core Spatial Analysis capabilities, advanced offerings cater to specific industry or functional needs. Whether requirements call for querying across data types, understanding your own data in a broader context, analyzing travel times and aggregating statistics, providing statistical support or other capabilities, Mapfluence can deliver.
For organizations that wish to leverage Mapfluence's embedded geographic technology, a white-labeled offering allow for direct integration into your application. From key management to e-commerce, the platform was designed with flexibility in mind.
