Maptitude Mapping Software

Frequently Asked Questions

Unlike many other mapping and GIS software packages that require users to purchase data separately, Maptitude includes extensive geographic and demographic data so that you can get started as soon as you open the box.

Maptitude mapping software includes the features and data that you need to unearth the trends hidden in your data. Below are answers to some frequently asked questions. Please contact Caliper Sales at sales@caliper.com or +1 617-527-4700 if you have further questions or want to discuss your particular needs.

Can I see my customers and prospects on the map?
Yes. Maptitude includes state-of-the-art geocoding tools to let you pin-map your data using address, ZIP Code, city, state, or other information in your database. In most cases, you don't need to copy or import your data - Maptitude can create a file containing the location of points on the map and link this file directly to your existing database.
Can I get my own data into Maptitude?
Yes. Maptitude is designed to let you display, edit, and map your own data. 
How do I get my data into Maptitude?
The Create-a-Map Wizard gives you start-to-finish assistance for getting your data into Maptitude. With just a few clicks you can locate, analyze, and map your data. Maptitude can work with your Excel, Access, dBASE, and other data sources.
 

Maptitude also makes it easy to use your geographic data. Maptitude supports direct access for Esri Shapefiles, MapInfo TAB files, and Oracle Spatial tables. Additional import support is included for other GIS and CAD packages including ArcView, Atlas GIS, AutoCAD DXF, MapInfo MIF, and TIGER/Line.
What data are included with Maptitude?

Can I use Maptitude data with other programs?
The data that come with Maptitude are restricted by license for use only with the Maptitude software. However, any files that you create are yours to use in any way you like. 
Can I use Maptitude on an Apple Macintosh
Yes. Most Macs purchased in the last several years will have an Intel CPU, and you can use virtualization software such as VMWare Fusion or Parallels Desktop to run Windows, or indeed you can also boot up your machine natively in Windows using Apple's Boot Camp software. Any of these solutions works very well for running Maptitude.

With any of these options you would need to have a Microsoft Windows license. Apple's Boot Camp is free with the Mac OS, but VMWare and Parallels are commercial products.
Can I customize an application or integrate Maptitude into my application?
Yes. The Maptitude Geographic Information System Development Kit (GISDK) is a full-featured macro-programming and application development language that lets you automate repetitive tasks or create custom applications.
Does Maptitude support satellite and aerial images?
Yes, Maptitude can display TIFF, GeoTIFF, PNG, JPEG/World, JPEG 2000, MrSID, SPOTView, Orthophoto, and ECW image files. After you display an image, you can use the geographic editing tools to trace new map layers. Maptitude also includes tools that let you incorporate imagery from various Internet sources in your maps.
Can I distribute maps I make with Maptitude? Can I put them on a web site?
There are certain restrictions on publishing maps that make use of Caliper copyrighted data sets. A separate web license is required for publishing maps that make use of these data sets on the web. If you use only your data sets there are no restrictions on publication. For additional information about putting your maps on the web, read about Maptitude for the Web or contact Caliper Corporation directly (email: info@caliper.com, telephone +1 617-527-4700).
Can Maptitude tell me how to get from one place to another?
Yes. Maptitude 2014 includes a 2013 HERE map with street data that contains information on one-way streets and travel time allowing you to find shortest and fastest routes. Maptitude also solves "traveling salesman" problems allowing you to find efficient routes among many stops.
Can I use Maptitude maps with my word processor or spreadsheet?
Yes. Maptitude supports OLE 2.0, which lets you link or embed maps in your spreadsheets, word processing documents, or drawing or desktop publishing files. You can also copy maps to other applications using the Windows clipboard or by saving maps as Windows bitmap, JPEG, GIF, TIFF, EMF, or PNG files. 
How do I learn to use Maptitude?
Maptitude is very easy to learn and use. It uses a standard Windows interface with menus, toolbars, and on-line help, so it will seem familiar to you. Create-A-Map Wizard dialog box will ask just a few questions, then create a map at any scale from all the countries of the world to streets around a U.S. address, landmark, or intersection.
