Maptitude is a robust and easy-to-use mapping tool that incorporates three-dimensions (3D). Maptitude provides all the features that your organization requires in order to take advantage of the geographic elements underpinning successful 3D, surface, and terrain-based projects.
Maptitude costs only US$695 and is packaged as a one-stop-solution, shipping with all the tools required to allow infrastructure professionals (analysts, surveyors, architects, planners, civil engineers, geoscientists and designers) to model 3D data.
Maptitude includes an easy-to-use but powerful 3D heat mapping tool that you can use to illustrate your data for area layers such as postal/ZIP Codes or sales territories (Figure 1). The 3-D theme tool supports the visualization of two columns of data via choices for both color and height. This mapping video shows how to create 3D thematic maps.
Maptitude can be used for 3D mapping in many countries including the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, Brazil and in many additional locations (more data…).
The 3D View allows you to visualize maps in stunning and compelling ways, enabling you to explore locations with an audience in ways that just aren't possible in two dimensions (2D). By presenting your data in a realistic 3D perspective, decision makers, influencers and stakeholders will have better insights into your work.
You can build a 3D scene from the huge number of Maptitude model files, and users can add their own 3D buildings and scenery using any combination of SketchUp, VRML, or 3DS formats (Figure 2).
Maptitude supports connectivity with a wide variety of geographic (raster/vector) and tabular databases such as Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle (See the Maptitude Data Access page for more information on supported data formats). Maptitude allows simultaneous editing of geographic and attribute data files by multiple users, and has native support for corporate databases (e.g., Oracle Spatial) for direct storage, editing, and access to all types of geographic data.
Maptitude runs on Windows, while Maptitude for the Web applications are accessible via browser-based interfaces, allowing use in the field via mobile devices.
With Maptitude, you can:
3D Views can be comprised of:
Once you have created a 3D scenario you can view it from various angles and move through the 3D landscape automatically using a flight path.
With Maptitude you can analyze and display surfaces on a 2D map or as a 3D View. You can prepare the surface from any point layer that contains elevation values, typically measured in feet or meters above sea level. Maptitude can also create surfaces that represent data values such as measures of air pollution, levels of radon gas over a geographic region. These models may be used to generate contours or to interpolate data values at specific locations.
The Maptitude surface analysis tools and applications allow you to:
You can also use density grids to visualize point data by transforming the points into a regular grid. For example, you can identify customer or employment concentrations and then view the maps in a 3D View where higher concentrations are shown with a higher elevation (Figure 5).
Maptitude starts at only US$695 and is packaged as a one-stop solution. Maptitude remains the most competitively priced professional 3D mapping software available and is unique in the marketplace for the provision of comprehensive data and functionality in a single product for a single low price.
