Catchment & Boundary Manager
For: MapInfo Pro/MapBasic
Catchment and boundary management tool. Tool facilitates manipulation of boundary areas and then analysis of results.
This tool will support the management of catchment or boundary areas. It was designed to support the work of a Local Education Authority LEA by allowing the manipulation of school catchment areas and subsequent analyses of results. The tool will allow the management and analysis of any boundary areas (for example sales areas) but the interface is designed mainly from an education perspective.
To work the tool needs at least one table containing polygons that represent boundaries or catchments. The nodes of the polygons need to be "snapped" together on shared boundaries. To perform analysis the tool needs a table containing point data for example pupils or addresses.
An example of how the tool can be used:
An LEA needs to review catchment areas of schools. The tool allows a user to drag adjoining catchment areas in a single process ensuring that boundaries stay “snapped” together. Once the boundary has been moved the tool can analyse the number of points (pupils or properties) within each new catchment and then export results to csv for further analysis
The tool was created by Martin Hodder of Higher Mapping Solutions
