Xploria, a geospatial application built on the illustreets platform, offers an interactive location research tools for UK real estate. Xploria amalgamates a broad spectrum of demographic, environmental, property, and connectivity data to offer an extensive, user-friendly location intelligence solution.

The application caters to users who require comprehensive location data for the UK, including demographic profiles, property information, environment details, crime statistics, school information, connectivity data, and much more. All this data is assembled in an easily comprehensible format to facilitate informed decision-making.

Advanced features

Utilizing illustreets’ low-code spatial analytics and reporting platform, Xploria offers a series of features tailored for a seamless user experience. The main map has a context layer where users can switch between different themes such as living standards, crime rank, broadband speed, area classification, and house price growth, thereby facilitating multi-thematic spatial analysis.

Most layers in Xploria are filterable, providing users with a granular level of control to specify their location preferences. The map interface is interactive, meaning users can click or tap any location to access a wealth of data specific to that area. This includes the socio-demographic profile, amenities within walking distance, green spaces, crime data, and more.

Leveraging Big Data

Each month, Xploria attracts tens of thousands of visitors, illustrating the platform’s relevance and the demand for robust, user-friendly geospatial applications. To cater to this large user base, Xploria collates, processes, and analyzes a significant volume of data. The data sources are both proprietary and open, ensuring a broad and comprehensive range of information for users to leverage.

This extensive array of data is then synchronized, updated, and rigorously checked against its original schema to ensure accuracy and consistency. illustreets automates these processes, ensuring that all datasets, transformations, and visualizations run and refresh automatically whenever new data is received from any of the linked sources.

Impact of user engagement

The utility of Xploria’s approach is emphasized by its high level of user engagement, with tens of thousands of users relying on it every month for in-depth location intelligence. Xploria allows users to become part of the geospatial analysis process, granting them the ability to customize the map interface and filter data according to their preferences.

For example, users can estimate travel time from any public transport station, making the tool incredibly useful for logistics or commute planning. The application also offers a “location dashboard,” where users can explore local area stats, house prices, crime rate, nearby amenities, and more, all in one place.

It’s not often one comes across a company like illustreets — a world-class product…

…that outperforms industry giants, coupled with personalized service that allows product customization to allow exploration of new markets.

Village Infrastructure Angels has combined its knowledge and illustreets to deliver world class infrastructure mapping and planning services that, to the best of our knowledge, has no comparable competition, resulting in repeat work captured for both companies from respected institutions like the World Bank, Inter-American Development Bank and many others.

It has been a sheer delight to work with the illustreets team, and I look forward to many more years of collaboration that can result in more infrastructure being built to help the world’s poorest 1-2 billion people, and probably saving governments and donors billions of dollars via large-scale innovative design.

We replaced spreadsheets of coordinates and calculation tables with illustreets.

Our business is selling equipment, which brings least cost electrification out to hard to reach areas, so we took our geospatial plannning data and plotted it in illustreets.

It became quickly apparent to our partners that they could make massive savings by setting up decentralised clusters of mesh-grids vs. more traditional centralised solutions. They were able to show this to other engineers and management in their organization and quickly we were able to move to supplying equipment and getting more power to the people.

We have only scratched the surface of the potential illustreets provides and it’s been a great experience using it. Highly recommended easy UX - quick leap to visualising GIS data.

illustreets has provided an unmatched ability to build on large and complex datasets…

…to not only make our data visually beautiful but to present complex data as simple and easy to understand dynamic stories to our clients. This is particularly important to us when dealing with highly technical data to enable non-technical clients the ability to easily understand and navigate their way through the GIS apps, without getting lost in a mass of data and information. Previous solutions we had worked with lacked this final piece of the puzzle.

In addition, the SQL engine within illustreets is unrivaled in it’s ease of use - as a relative novice in SQL language, it was easy to get to grips with utilising some of the power of this engine using their simple and user friendly SQL query builder GUI and later move into more advanced queries with the SQL editor.

The support illustreets has provided throughout has been first class and always met with quick responses, even when the support requested has not necessarily been related to illustreets platform!
