Simply Analytics

Practical guidance on using Simply Analytics, an online resource for creating maps and tables based on statistical data.


Starting a project

Simply Analytics begins by prompting you to select the location or locations you want information about. You can choose multiple locations so you can run comparative analysis later.

Once you have chosen your location(s) the software will add sample statistics to get you started.

Editing your map's content

Your preliminary map will look something like this:

Simply Analytics - sample map 1

This preliminary map does not display all the variables your were given, though. To display the other variables, toggle the menus at the top of your map.

Adding other variables

To choose different variables to display on your map, select from the categories available on the left side of the screen

Editing the Legend

To change the maps appearances click on the "Edit" link at the bottom of the Map Legend. The Legend Editor will give you all the options to change the appearance.  You can change how the numbers are grouped, how many groupings there are and what colours you want.
