GeoCommons providing free and easy to use online platform to create map based data visualisations

I just came across GeoCommons which enables pretty much anyone to create stunning map based data visualisation from simple spreadsheets

Most marketers would have some customer data tied to geographic information but would struggle to visualise their data on a map to unlock additional insights without some sophisticated business intelligence tool and data manipulation, well here’s an alternative. 

Have a look at the below map screenshot visualising underweight populations around the world (check out the live map on the GeoCommons website) or watch the YouTube video to find out how easy it can be.
