Getting Started


Geotency - Personal Edition is a spatial site reporting tool that lets you extract data from a chosen area. Data is extracted using catchment areas, an area overlay that covers the location of your choice. You can specify how the catchment area will be drawn and how much area cover is needed.

  1. Radius catchment is a circular area, the radius is set by the user
  2. Drive-time Catchment is a user-set area that is estimated by travel time (Minute / Hours), towards or away from your site
  3. Drive-Distance Catchment is a user-set area that is estimated by travel distance (meters / kilometers), towards or away from your site
  4. Site is the center point for catchment areas selected by the user
