GISconnector for Excel – the software for exchanging data between ArcGIS and Excel

GISconnector for Excel is the only software to offer seamless and dynamic exchange of data and functions between ArcGIS Desktop and Microsoft Excel.

GISconnector for Excel has been on the market since June 2014. GI Geolabs is the only company offering this unique software which enables seamless and dynamic exchange of data and functions between ArcGIS Desktop and Microsoft Excel.

Interaction between Excel and ArcGIS is usually unavoidable in geomarketing problems. However, until recently, the exchange of data and functions between these two programs was complicated and tedious. The GISconnector for Excel from the company GI Geolabs resolves this problem. The software consists of an add-in for ArcGIS Desktop and a second add-in for Microsoft Excel.

These add-ins communicate with each other. The GISconnector not only makes it possible to transfer data bidirectionally between ArcGIS and Excel. Both programs can also exchange selections and filters with each other. This means that functions available in Excel can also be applied to data in ArcGIS and vice versa. "The GISconnector for Excel revolutionises the way companies deal with problems using ArcGIS and Excel. It is a quantum leap in terms of time savings, error minimisation and comfort", said Matthias Abele, Managing Director at GI Geolabs GmbH.
