Geographic data can tell a powerful story. Whether analyzing regional trends or plotting sites, maps are packed with insights generated from your location data. With Sigma, you can create interactive maps using latitude and longitude, or map paths and areas utilizing geoJSON.

Sigma Maps help contextualize geospatial information and provide greater understanding when analyzing data. Read on to see how customers use Sigma to share geographical insights and get a quick rundown on how to make your first map.

Mapping Charging Stations Across the US

Volta Charging uses Sigma to map their charging locations across the US. By adjusting the size of location points, they can quickly see which charging stations and regions are the most popular with customers, and which stations are active vs under construction. These maps are then embedded in their internal wiki for easy access, and custom styling is applied to match existing maps from other applications.
