Learn how Maptitude can help your organization:
Caliper continues to offer new country packages for use with Maptitude, including:
Featured Data Product:
Do you have global customers or assets in multiple countries? If so, the new Maptitude Country Packages will allow you to quickly and easily support your international mapping requirements.
Each Package includes access to an up-to-date NAVTEQ® database, allowing accurate address locating and street visualization, plus robust data on which to calculate driving routes and travel time rings. Also included from NAVTEQ® are building footprints for many urban locations, railroads, and comprehensive named landmarks that range from public facilities to commercial buildings including shops, restaurants, and retail stores. Also shipped are postal data and, where available, detailed demographics.
Each Package covers a single country. Maptitude ships with one Package of your choice, and additional countries can be purchased separately. Upgrades are available from versions 5.0 and 6.0 for customers owning Maptitude, Maptitude for Great Britain, Maptitude for Australia, and Maptitude for Canada.
Price: US$695. Place your order online at the Caliper Store Now.
Maps are composed of different types of information and Maptitude organizes all of these map features into layers. When you create or work with a map, you choose the layers you want to see (see the training video) and decide how each layer should look.
You can create a new map by mixing and matching the layers that appear in your open maps. For example, you may have American customers on a US map and Canadian customers on a Canada map, but you want to see a combined US/Canada map.
The following steps walk you through this task:
1. Open two or more maps.
2. Choose Map-Combine Existing Maps. Maptitude displays the New Map window which lists the layers in your maps.
3. Type a name for your new map in the Map Name edit box.
4. Choose the layers you want to include in the new map from the Contents list.
5. Click OK.
6. If you chose Open Files from the list, Maptitude displays the Open Files dialog box. Choose one or more files and click Open.
7. Maptitude creates a new map with the combined layers you chose.

This month we showcase maps created by Dr. James M. McCluskey to support a survey in the Town of Wausau (WI, USA). Social Survey Data was integrated with the Maptitude GIS Software to determine the needs of a rural community in a geographic context.
