Radius and Drive Time Feature On Social Explorer

FRIDAY, FEB 05, 2021

Social Explorer offers valuable data, tools, and insights to help you confidently target and analyze any tract of land in the United States, allowing you to make supported decisions backed by proven data insights. Endless data possibilities are just a few clicks away, as our platform enables you to explore locations, opportunities, and trends in your service area with complete ease and certainty.

Continually striving to bring innovations in data analysis, we recently added our new radius and drive time reporting feature to our platform. This feature allows you to compare demographic and economic data for multiple areas, drive times, radiuses, and years in just a few simple steps.

Location Analysis Made Quick and Easy

Using our new features is quick and easy. To begin, on the Social Explorer map, enter your specific location of interest in the search bar, which can be found on the top left corner of your screen.

Enter your location of interest in the search bar to explore our new features.

Once you have selected your location of interest, you will be able to choose between four available options from radius, drive, walking, and cycling time. Note that you can choose between single and multi ring. Multi ring will allow you to select up to 3 radiuses.

Select from four available analysis options: radius, drive time, walking, and cycling time.

Multi ring allows you to choose up to three radiuses.

When you are ready to create your report, click “create report.” First, select one of our premade topics or your own saved template. You can even include up to two years for comparison. When complete, click “create report” once more to generate your report with your chosen variables. Reports will open in a separate tab (ensure that popup blocker is disabled) and are available for download in CSV or Excel and can also be shared through the shareable link.

Select up to 2 years to compare data and also the topic/report style of your liking.

Generated reports will appear in a separate tab and are available to share and download.

Evaluating data and trends tend to be extremely time-consuming, yet Social Explorer allows you to quickly compare areas and indicators with complete ease and no previous GIS experience!

Not only does Social Explorer efficiently help you complete radius and drive time analyses, it also provides compelling maps to help you visualize trends in your report. These live images are easily shareable with any of your collaborators, allowing you to understand your community through visual elements that make insights interesting and actionable.
