Hi All

I wonder if it is possible to obtain a map of Denmark - including 'Regioner og Kommuner'. Thereafter I would like to map 'some data' onto the map depending on e.g. zipcodes.

I would love some tips and tricks on this subject :-)

Thanks in advance

Hi Torben,

You can work with maps in two ways in TARGIT:

  • Simple image maps – not zoomable, with colored dots.
    Scalable maps – zoomable, with colored areas.

The first, simple image maps, can be added, through the TARGIT Management client (resources, maps), as a bmp or jpg file - e.g. a Denmark map downloaded from the Internet. Once it has been added you can use it with a Map object in the TRAGIT client. First time you use it, you will have to manually define locations of e.g. zip codes. Note: Too many zip codes on this type of map will tend to give a rather cluttered and less useful visual presentation.

The latter, scalable maps, require and addon license to the standard TARGIT license, and it is also a bit complex to set up. It works with vector based graphics according to the GIS (Geographic Information Systems) standard. So, first you will need to obtain such a map/workspace, and next you will need to pair the information of the layers in the map to a geographical dimension in your data warehouse. This is done through the TARGIT Management client (connections, GIS).

I will leave it open to other users to suggest suitable maps they may be using today.

I second that - if anyone is using GIS maps - please do share.

From my point, not only using DK and zip-codes, but also a world map, with data from countries across the world.

You can get a free map of Denmark inkl. zip codes, regioner, kommuner here:
http://download.kortfors...content/geodataprodukter

You can chose between:
Danmarks Administrative Geografiske Inddeling 1:10.000
Danmarks Administrative Geografiske Inddeling 1:2 mio.
Danmarks Administrative Geografiske Inddeling 1:500.000

Download as TAB file (Mapinfo). Using Mapinfo you can transform the map as you wish, and save it as a .mws-file. Targit uses this file-type.

I hope I have been able to explain it properly :-)


Regards,
Svend Erik
