I want to analyse a Dealers retail sales performance by location , measuring sales versus population in total and social class etc. I have the shape file for the population of Ireland which includes social class per area.
Also I have the sales data per dealer per product category, and I know where they are located!
So...now ,I would be very appreciative of any help where to start in Qgis,
The way I envisage this is that I would have a map of Ireland with my dealers highlighted on the map with a specific radius , 30km for example , highlighted with a coloured circle. this radius would automatically estimate / calculate the population and it's demographics within the dealer area (30km radius)
I would also like to be able to filter by product to try identify trends of a particular type of product sold per area.
I Look forward to your help and hopefully patience as I am going this alone and am a beginner ,in the sense that I only installed Qgis yesterday.
I installed the openlayer plugin and have my google street map of Ireland.
