The NetScaler Insight Center geo maps functionality displays the usage of applications across different geographical locations on a map. Administrators can use this information to understand the trends in application usage across various geographical locations.
You can configure NetScaler Insight Center to display the geo maps for a particular geographical location or LAN by specifying the private IP range (start and end IP address) for the location.

Consider a scenario in which organization ABC has 2 branch offices, one in Santa Clara and the other in India.
The Santa Clara users use the NetScaler Gateway appliance at SClara.x.com to access VPN traffic. The Indian users use the NetScaler Gateway appliance at India.x.com to access VPN traffic.
During a particular time interval, say 10 AM to 5 PM, the users in Santa Clara connect to SClara.x.com to access VPN traffic. Most of the users access the same NetScaler Gateway, causing a delay in connecting to the VPN, so some users connect to India.x.com instead of SClara.x.com.
A NetScaler administrator analyzing the traffic can use the geo map functionality to show the traffic in Santa Clara office. The map shows that the response time in the Santa Clara office is very high, because the Santa Clara office has only one NetScaler Gateway appliance through which users can access VPN traffic. The administrator might therefore decide to install another NetScaler Gateway, so that users have two local NetScaler Gateway appliances through which to access the VPN.
