These data are usually managed in tables, and a large amount of data looks very messy and unintuitive.

1. Project labeling, market competitiveness analysis

The real estate developer uses the Dituhui network management function for visual display, uploads its table data with one click, and marks the project status of competitors on the map. Different color icons show the location of different developer projects and add relevant information for each project, such as the year of project development, whether it is on sale, area, the person in charge, contact information, etc. It is very clear and intuitive, convenient for real-time viewing.

Based on this function, project outlets can also be displayed in the heat map, aggregate map, grid map, honeycomb map, and other patterns, which is convenient for business analysis and the next step of work.
