In Maptitude 2014 you can now create high quality reports that can be automatically produced when conducting ring and drive-time analyses. The report templates present your demographic and site analyses much more quickly and professionally than was possible in previous versions of the software. You simply choose from your own information or from the wealth of population variables included with Maptitude. This enables you to make better informed location-based decisions using clear and concise results, and saves you from wading through dense database tables.
Web Map Layers
Maptitude 2014 gives you access to aerial, road, terrain, and hybrid map layers that can serve as distinctive backgrounds to your maps. These layers are visually attractive and support a range of tasks including real estate site exploration.
Maptitude 2014 provides completely new 3D capabilities that can be used in any industry or application that requires landscape visualization. The powerful suite of tools allows the user to display, manage, and interpret elevation-based geographic information, and to accurately create, explore, and refine scenarios directly within a 3D environment.
Working seamlessly within Maptitude, the 3D View allows you to map in 3 dimensions as a way of visualizing terrain or as an engaging means of presenting findings to an audience. You can build a 3D scene from the huge number of Maptitude models and any combination of SketchUp, VRML, or 3DS models, such as buildings and landmarks.
