I have a set of coordinates (northing and easting) and data associated with each coordinate that I would like to display in visio. I would like to:
- Link the data from excel dynamically
- add a shape for each line in the spread sheet based on the data (northing, easting)
- edit the shapes based on other shape data (change the color of the shape to red based on shape data criteria)
- label the shape with the unique ID "Pile"
- have all of the data from excel as shape data that can be viewed when published or exported to PDF.

I'm new to using visio, but have been able to link the data in visio, but am not sure where to start on the other requirements.

I've attached the spread sheet I am using
