I think I would like to have a play with some demographic mapping software. Here's the scenario:
I have a list of several thousand customer postcodes and I would like to chart the population onto a map of the local area - something like you see in atlases where the population is coloured one colour and the countryside is another colour. There could be varying depths of colour for greater population density.
Does anybody know of any free software out there that might do this please? I need free because although I'm a business I'm limited with funds and just basically having a play really.
Online would do - i.e I mean I upload the postcode file and it does it for me.
I've had a scout around on google but not really sure what I'm looking for or where to look for the free stuff (if there is any)
Phil - that 2nd link does say - Create your own GIS maps without the expense of commercial GIS software - middle column just down from the top - hope this helps. I know nothing about this subject so can't advise any further.
