SpatialXL is our base product for the other products. This product is an add-in to Microsoft Excel, making it very user-friendly and enabling a direct link between client tables and maps. By integrating our product with Microsoft Excel, users are able to create and share their own maps quickly and easily.

We have add-in product solutions for SpatialXL, such as Spatial Publisher, Spatial Server and RouteXL.

Spatial Publisher

The Spatial Publisher is an add-in to the SpatialXL and it enables users to publish and share the maps as simple Spatial Reader files.

Spatial Reader

Spatial Reader files require no licence; therefore it is the only product that can be used even if the client has not installed SpatialXL. These files are easily shared and distributed within an organisation. They consist of desktop maps that are interactive so that users can navigate, switch layers, use the map selection tools and much more.


RouteXL is an add-in to Microsoft Excel and it enables easy and efficient routing, such as point to point, matrix routing, travelling salesman and drive time/catchment analysis.

Point to point routing consists of selecting two points in order to calculate the route. Matrix routing, on the other hand, calculates all distances as well as times between all points on your map. These are stored on a SQL database which can be pulled at any time.


LocateXL is also an add-in to Microsoft Excel and it caters perfectly to your business mapping needs. As this is a geocoding tool, it converts physical addresses into geographic coordinates for you. These coordinates then appear on your map as a point location – making it much easier to calculate aspects important for business decision-making such as point to point routing.

Spatial Server

Spatial Server is an add-in for Spatial XL and is ideal if you need to share your maps within an enterprise or the internet. This tool allows you to publish your Spatial XL maps to the Spatial Server and share them, making them visible on browsers and even smart phones.
