The BMAP interactive mapping tool was initially developed for energy and commodity traders to enable them to get a fast picture of the market and make quick decisions.
BMAP populates maps with all types of physical assets – energy assets (oil, gas fields, pumping stations and pipelines), mines of all types and individual vessels and ports. This is overlaid with the real time data that could affect the asset.
For example, you could monitor the routes of oil tankers and overlay this with storm predictions/impact forecasts; or map the world’s thermal power plants, add their capacity information and then download real time power outage data to quickly assess potential problems in any region.
This powerful visual display really makes it easier to build, and make sense of, layer upon layer of complex data.
Why not test BMAP out now on one of our Bloomberg terminals?
