New Data

Every 2016 Country Package* has a refreshed data set that provides access to the most up-to-date geographic information available.

In addition, country specific changes include:

United States 2016 Country Package:
The U.S. Census boundaries (e.g., Tracts, Counties, MCDs, MSAs, States) and ZIP Codes contain updated demographics and Census data such as buying power/disposable income, banking compliance data, and the 2014 Census ACS data.

Routing Tools

You need the ability to plot accurate stops and to manipulate, manage, and compare routes. Maptitude 2016 gives you these capabilities in a simple Routing Manager tool that allows you to order or optimize your vehicle visits, among hundreds of stops with variable cost and time per stop.

If your vehicles have speed constraints by road type then you can adjust speeds by road category. You can also get a clear overview of your service areas by creating drive-time zones around your starting locations, adjusted by driving speed. The drive-time rings can be concentric, cumulative, have multiple origins, and can produce reports via a single click. (See a video demonstrateing the new routing tools.)

Territory Tools

Businesses require robust territory creation tools that excel in both the handling of data tables and in the visual manipulation and representation of service areas. We designed Maptitude 2016 to exceed these requirements with an intuitive Territory Wizard and a sophisticated Territory Manager with complete undo and redo support.

The Territory Wizard provides a step-by-step guide, from data input all the way through to territory creation. Maptitude 2016 will handle all your territory design needs including creating territories from scratch, creating overlapping territories, or creating territories based on tables, filters, sales person, facility location, or from existing map boundaries. (See a video on using the Territory Wizard.)

The Territory Manager can be used to build or modify your territories. These territories can be allowed to overlap, and you can see running totals of demographics or sales data. If you are creating territories based on postal areas, for example, you can still use larger areas such as counties and states to create your regions. (See a video on using the Territory Manager)

Single click exports allow you to see your territory list and corresponding geography, such as postal areas, and also include population reports.

In Maptitude 2016 you can quickly and intuitively create high-quality reports for Microsoft Office Excel or as a PDF.

You can immediately view an Excel demographic report when using the lasso, circle, or rectangle drawing tools, or when analyzing your service areas. The Excel reports enable you to make well-informed location-based decisions using clear and concise results that can be easily shared.

The Maptitude 2016 routing tool provides a strip map report that can be saved to PDF. The new report shows an overview map of the route, along with maps for each leg of the trip, complete with turn arrows, street names, distance traveled, and time taken.

In addition, you can now save your maps to more video formats (that can include audio) and to animated GIFs, both of which allow you to present your map analysis to others throughout your organization.

Other New Features

Listed here are a few more of the many enhancements in Maptitude 2016. For a complete overview of the new features, please see the new features in Maptitude 2016 PDF.


Maptitude now dominates the space vacated by Microsoft MapPoint. Maptitude ships with the latest maps, data, and demographics.

With enhanced versions of the features that Microsoft MapPoint users are familiar with, Maptitude retains the ease-of-use of the MapPoint tools while providing the functionality that Microsoft users could only wish for.

The new and improved tools include:

  • Territory management and import
  • Route/directions management
  • A hover label tool
  • A circle/radius drawing tool and a line drawing tool, each auto-labeled with distance
  • Support for metropolitan areas and 3-digit ZIP Code areas
  • MapPoint, Streets & Trips, and AutoRoute file format support


Speed improvements provide faster access to maps, routes, drive-time rings, and geographic analysis. Maptitude 2016 provides significant speedups in map display with faster drawing of styles, filters, layers, and labels.


Maptitude continues to support the latest data standards and file formats including those for Google Maps, Microsoft MapPoint, and Excel.

For example, Google Earth layers can now be imported along with their associated fields of data, while Microsoft Streets & Trips and AutoRoute users can migrate their pushpins to Maptitude via a simple File-Open. The functionality to easily open MapPoint, Streets & Trips, and AutoRoute data in Maptitude is valuable to users that have invested in these discontinued Microsoft mapping products and who now need to shift to a better application.

New File Import Support

  • Import Google Earth Documents (KML/KMZ) attribute data fields
  • Import Microsoft Streets & Trips (EST) and Microsoft AutoRoute (AXE) files
  • Import MapPoint Map files (PTM, EST, AXE) icon styles and colors
  • Import and export Excel files (XLSX) even when Microsoft Office is not installed
