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 install the software. Maptitude is also a professional mapping tool providing a full suite of location intelligence tools, which is in stark contrast to the limiting functionality of most mapping applications.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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?"
"Can I get my own data into Maptitude?"

"How do I get my data into Maptitude?"
Maptitude also makes it easy to use your geographic data. Maptitude supports direct access for Esri Shapefiles, MapInfo TAB files, MapPoint PTM files, and Oracle Spatial tables.
