Automate your map data processing via Google Sheets
Easily link maps to Google Sheets and keep your maps up to date
Mapotic, specifically the Data Machine product, can be set up to connect to a Google Sheet and use a simple low-code setup to download data from it at regular intervals. The data is then processed or assigned to existing meta information according to specified rules. Finally, everything can be simply and clearly displayed on a map using Live Data Maps, or exposed to the API for further processing by connected applications – either mobile or web.
Manage your data directly in the spreadsheet or switch to our CMS
You can edit the data for the map visualization directly in the online spreadsheets as a simple and convenient way to control the map content. It doesn’t just have to be meta-information about locations or objects displayed on the map. Google Sheets can also be used to insert and edit movement data, or just parts of the data that you otherwise would control in our CMS.
Google Sheets as middleware for map visualization
An online database in the form of an online spreadsheet can also be used by allowing automated external tools to add data to it. In addition to internal systems like GIS, this can be forms, aggregation, or automation tools like Zapier, Make, or Apify.
Import once or set permanent connection
Based on your use case, you can do a one-time data import, or choose permanent connection.
Data imports and re-imports
Spreadsheet data can be imported into Mapotic simply as a one-time import, or manually perform repeated imports that differentially update only the new data.
Mapotic can also be set up to retrieve data from a spreadsheet at regular intervals without the need for your manual intervention.
