Below is a sample map that shows the direction and magnitude of change in the data provided in the table on the previous page. This hypothetical map should give you an idea of how much more clearly data can be expressed in a map format. In addition to the type of information included below, we can also incorporate data culled from public statistics, such as information on demographics, income or education. Also, information such as place names, roads, bodies of water and other geographical features can also be easily included in this type of map.

The map below is a good example of how we can help you make more informed decisions, and allow you to better inform others. This particular map shows the pattern of change in our imaginary company's sales. From the map, we can see that their sales in the core of the GTA are falling (as indicated by the red area), while sales in the more peripheral areas of the GTA are increasing. This type of pattern might influence how the company chooses to spend marketing dollars, for example. We're sure you can think of plenty of additional uses for this sort of information

Please remember that, due to technology limitations, these demonstrations are limited in the scope of information that they can convey. Actual maps are usually much larger and more detailed, allowing a broader range of information conveyed, while at the same time getting the main point accross to your audience more quickly than a presentation in a table format.
