IGI is an Interactive GIS Interface, provided by GeoFusion Mapping, this interface is created useing a combination of hardware and software, to produce an interactive GIS viewer. IGI allows our customers to view GIS raster and vector files without using expensive GIS software. IGI requires only an internet connection, and one of the below web browsres to function: •
Mozilla Firefox (Version 3.0 or Higher)
Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 9.0 or Higher)
Microsoft Internet Explorer (Version 8.0 or Lower, with Adobe SVG Viewer plug-in)
Opera (version 8.5 or higher)
Safari (version 3.0 or Higher)
HOW DOES IGI HELP WITH SALES AND MARKETING? The interactive interface that IGI provides, serves as a great platform for the display of, and interaction with, sales data, the analysis of sales data, demographics display, and marketing evaluation, on a geographic scale. Using IGI to map the location of sales, we are able to get a birds eye view of the distribution of sales over the area reached by our business. Along with this, IGI enables the user to turn layers on and off, to evaluate sales, and understand why sales occur in specific geographic areas. Once we know where or customers are, and what demographic information exists in these areas; which has influenced the purchase of our product, we can then make calculated marketing decisions to actively attract further purchase from our customers, as well as, first purchases from new customers.

MARKETING The IGI system not only gives businesses insight into where to market, but by inserting marketing efforts and their locations into the maps, we can compare and contrast sales data in those locations against each other every quarter, to establish if marketing efforts have been successful, and which types of marketing efforts have worked the best. The below map illustrated the placement of two different types of marketing efforts done by the Cape Town car dealership, as well as their locations.
