GIS and Mapping data with Excel



If your data contains geographical information such as postcodes, GPS, Drive Times, Shop locations .. you need to view it on a map. 


At Excel Frome we have years of experience, working  with all types of  data that need maps.

Often we use a GIS, which stands for Geographical Information System. A piece of software that is capable of understanding data and displaying it on a map.
