A minimum of 2GB of memory per concurrent user is required, plus the operating system (16-32GB total)

Can I use Maptitude on a Mac?

  • If your Mac has an Intel CPU, you can use virtualization software such as VMWare Fusion or Parallels Desktop to run Windows, or 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.
  • Maptitude can be enabled to run on Apple Mac ARM M1/M2 chips with Windows, or on a Surface Pro with an ARM chip. Please contact Sales for the ARM enabled version.
  • If you do not have Windows on a Mac, Maptitude can be accessed remotely. If you have access to a PC you could allow Mac users to access the software remotely. 
  • Alternatively, Maptitude Online provides an ever expanding list of features and may be a great solution for Mac users because it does not require Windows or a local installation.
