Caliper Releases Maptitude 2012: Easy to Use, Affordable and Includes New Geodata

Why We Use Maptitude at

Maptitude 2012: New Features Overview

This next generation of Maptitude, the award winning GIS desktop software, continues to provide easy-to-use yet powerful mapping tools. Maptitude 2012 remains the most competitively priced, full-featured GIS/mapping software available.


New Data

New U.S. data sets provide access to up-to-date geographic information. Maptitude now includes an October 2011 NAVTEQ� map, allowing accurate address locating and street visualization, plus robust data on which to calculate shortest paths, network bands, and network partitions.

Other 2011 U.S. layers from NAVTEQ� include building footprints for many urban locations, highways, railroads, and landmarks. The Points of Interest layer contains over 2 million named locations that range from public facilities to commercial buildings including shops, restaurants, and retail stores.

Maptitude also ships with the October 2011 ZIP Code� updates ensuring that you are using the latest data. The 5-digit ZIP Code boundaries are a nationwide area database with ZIP Codes for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the territories. There is an updated point database of ZIP Code centroids for the entire country and 3-digit ZIP Code areas. The ZIP Code area layers now extend into non-deliverable areas, providing complete coverage of the continental U.S.

All of the US Census boundaries (e.g., tracts, counties, county subdivisions) that are included with Maptitude, plus 3- and 5-digit ZIP Code areas, contain several demographic profiles based on the data reported in the 2010 Census and the 2009 American Community Survey.

Network Analysis and Routing

There is a new shortest path toolbox with several enhancements:

  • Continuous live routing gives you instant feedback on the shortest or fastest routes as you drag the mouse over the map
  • A new option to maximize the use of highways allows for faster routing over large geographic areas
  • Formatted html (xml) directions can be created for any route with reduced "unknowns" in directions
  • Unrestricted routing allows for nationwide routing on an unlimited number of stops

The Network Bands toolbox has new options for creating bands from a point layer or by simply clicking origins on the map. Network bands have further been enhanced for greater accuracy.

Plus improvements in Styles and Display, Labelling, GeoTagging...more.
