Maptitude Geographic Information System (GIS) software provides everything you need to realize the benefits of desktop mapping and spatial analysis with a single, easy-to-use package.
For South Africa, a FREE Country Package is available that includes a detailed street layer with addresses for pin-mapping (geocoding) and travel time information for computing routes and drive-time rings. Also included are building footprints for many urban locations, railroads, and comprehensive named landmarks that range from public facilities to commercial buildings including shops, restaurants, and retail stores.
In addition, Caliper has created a Download Free Layers Add-In for Maptitude that provides easy access to no-cost web-based data-sources. This tool downloads detailed data including streets, landmarks, natural features, railways and postal code points for Congo, Ethiopia, Lesotho, Libya, Madagascar, Morocco, and Somalia. In addition, you can download political boundaries for most of Africa including Algeria, Botswana, Cameroon, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Tanzania, Tunisia, and Zimbabwe.
Maptitude also supports dozens of geographic file formats, table formats, and raster image formats.
