Big Bank Deposit Map

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

Over the last few years we’ve put maps on our website. We started with static html maps, but it required a significant amount of work to create the area maps so people could click through to the data. Then we tried Flash-based maps. While many people have Flash installed, there are still some viewers who do not have Flash.

So I am currently evaluating Microsoft MapPoint. It integrates nicely with other Microsoft products. I'm not crazy about the visual appearance of the map (most Flash-based maps seem nicer), but they certainly integrate nicely with spreadsheets and databases.

I’ve always wondered what is the share of 'Big Bank' deposits in each state and where each of the 'Big Banks' is dominant. So I did a few queries against the FDIC deposit data and produced a Sized Pie Chart Map. When you click on a Pie Chart, you will be launched to a state summary page. A picture is worth a thousand words, so I will be silent, and let you examine the map.

BTW, I'm going to ask Santa Claus for a copy of MapPoint, and I look forward to adding more data oriented maps to iBanknet.com in the New Year.

Seasons Greetings and Our Best Wishes to You for a Happy and Healthy 2011.

Chris and Marian.
