In CentralAmericaData we developed a geomarketing tool based on interactive maps of isochrons and consumer data, which allows us to identify where people are and what consumer characteristics they have. The map incorporates, for any Central American country, the variables population, income, average monthly expenditure and consumer interests. With this information it is possible to identify potential customers and define investment plan strategies accordingly, or to explore home delivery times from any point of sale.
