Featured Maptitude Map: Bubble Mapping the FIRE Economy by State (USA)

How does the FIRE (the Finance, Insurance, and Real Estate sectors) economy vary across the US? This map, made with Maptitude 2014, shows the percentage of adults working in this field by State.

Finance/insurance/Real Estate employment map

The map uses thematic mapping in the form of a scaled-symbol map. The simplest scaled-symbol is a circle, or bubble, and the size is proportional to the associated data.

Bubble maps are easier to understand than dot density maps, and unlike heat/color maps they are not restricted by the size of an area. 

As the map illustrates, New York and surrounding states have the highest percentages of workers in the FIRE category, which is also NY City's largest industry. The FIRE sector is clearly a prominent part of the service industry in the overall economy of the U.S. as well as in other developed Western countries.

Maptitude includes an extensive database of demographics at no additional charge. The demographics include the variables featured here, along with more detailed break-downs by industry of employment and occupation at the ZIP Code and Tract level. This local level detail allows for the target marketing of specific socio-economic groups. In the next section we will show how to create a bubble map. If you have any questions about data availability, please contact Caliper.

Tech Tip: How Do I Create a Bubble Map?

Maptitude bubble map of populationProportional symbol maps scale the size of simple symbols (usually a circle or square) proportionally to the data value found at that location. They are a simple concept to grasp: the larger the symbol, the "more" of something exists at a location. The default setting in Maptitude is to scale the circles directly proportionate to the data. 

So, for example, if Toronto has twice the population of Vancouver, the population symbol for Toronto will have twice the area. Whether you are mapping totals, counts, percentages, rates, or ratios, the scaled symbol theme will allow to you effectively map anything from liters of coffee consumed per capita to the location and magnitude of earthquakes.

International: Updated Download Free Layers Tool

Maptitude Download Free Layers Sri Lanka MapCaliper is excited to announce the release of the updated Download Free Layers Add-In.

The open source derived data now covers even more locations including postcodes for Northern Ireland, and streets and landmarks for Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Fiji, Peru, Lebanon, Russia, Sri Lanka, and Syria.

When boundaries are downloaded using the tool a basic Country Package is created that updates the Find and Wizard tools for your chosen region. The street layers, while still inappropriate for accurate routing, now support creation of drive-time rings and shortest paths across the chosen region.

Tricks & Tips: Creating Multiple Paths Interactively 

Maptitude Mapping Software Did You KnowThe shortest path tools in Maptitude identify the best paths for deliveries and calculate the distances between destinations (see video.)

But, did you know that on the same map you can create multiple paths each with a different color? When you are using the Tools-Routing-Routing Toolbox "Add a location" tool, you can simply double click when adding the final location. Then the next new location you add is the first stop of a new path. You can even go back and use the "Add or remove destination" tool to manually move locations on any path.
