Maptitude is the best mapping software for business intelligence! Mapping the largest foreign exports from each state provided several startling results. It is apparent from the Bureau of Labor Statistics data that the aerospace, automobile, and petroleum sectors dominate in the majority of states. Some other exports also stand out: gold in Massachusetts, needles in Minnesota, and Iron waste and scrap in Rhode Island. Since the data doesn't include domestic exports to the huge American market, the data is interesting in terms of how each state interacts in the global market.
