New Release: Maptitude 2018 Adds Enhanced MapPoint Features!

Maptitude 2018 dominates the space vacated by MapPoint, supporting Microsoft MapPoint-like tools & queries.

  • Support for waypoints from MapPoint and Streets & Trips (.PTM, .EST, .AXE) that further helps Maptitude to fill the void since the discontinuation of Microsoft MapPoint
  • An updated Create-a-Map Wizard™ that allows you to add shaded boundaries to an existing map
  • Improved design for the one-click export to Excel reports

Maptitude tools that were never available in MapPoint:

  • A Facility Location wizard for site selection analysis that helps you to identify the best locations for servicing your customers or target market. More...

“Ease of moving territories, obtaining census data and plotting territories to that data. Beautiful interface and several ways to customize the product and exports. The ability to pull in my older MapPoint files and data was a huge plus!”

“Easy to use and speedy to map, comparable for ease of use to the discontinued MapPoint but offers lots of stronger features. The Video tutorials are a really good resource.”
