Premium Mapping and Analysis

Subscription-based analysis tools

Individuals and organizations can use Data Basin's powerful analysis capabilities by subscribing to Premium Mapping and Analysis. A subscription provides access to the following features:

  • Select by Attribute – Select features within a dataset by usingvalues of attributes. The selected features are highlighted visually and can be used for further mapping and analysis.
  • Select by Intersection – Select features within a dataset based on an intersection with a drawing, another selection, or another dataset. The selected features are highlighted visually and can be used for further mapping and analysis.
  • Filter Layer by Selection – Use your selection to limit the visual display of features in a layer. The filtered set can be used as input for further mapping and analysis.
  • Export Selection to Drawing – Use your selection to create a drawing. Drawings can be edited (color, transparency, and border style) and saved with your map. Drawings can also be used for further mapping and analysis.
  • Export To Shapefile – Use your selection or drawing to create a shapefile. The shapefile can be downloaded and is ready to use with your GIS desktop software. Note: export to shapefile is subject to the terms of use for the associated data.
  • Buffer – Use your selection or drawing to create a buffer around a project area. The buffer is created in a separate drawing that can be edited and saved without adjusting your original project area. The buffer drawing can be used for further mapping and analysis.
  • Site Assessment Tool – Intersect your project area with compatible datasets to find the total count, length, and/or area of intersected features. Produces on-screen results, and supports export to PDF report or spreadsheet.
