Are you planning on taking a road trip this Summer that includes a baseball game? This month's featured map shows North America divided into territories based on the shortest drive-time to a Major League Baseball park. We have also calculated the portion of the U.S. population that lives within each area. Our analysis with Maptitude included some interesting results for baseball fans:
The 2017 USA Maptitude Country Package includes a point landmark database that includes thousands of points-of-interest, including baseball parks, stadia, and sports complexes.
The point of interest map layers for Maptitude 2017 are accessible as a free download. In this tech tip we describe how to install the layers and add them to a map.
When you have added one or more point of interest layers to your map as described in the above Tech Tip, you can then perform a drive-time ring analysis on those layers. For example, you could add the automobile, motorcycle, and truck dealership layers to the map and then determine how many of each type of dealership is within a 30-minute drive of a location.
Using the Drive-Time Rings toolbar (Tools > Routing & Directions > Drive-Time Rings) you can create a drive-time ring around your target location. You can then make the new drive-time layer the working layer and click on the Standard toolbar. The resulting Excel file will contain a sheet for each point-of-interest layer showing exactly which features are in the study area.
If you do not want a certain layer to appear in the report then you can turn the layer off in the Display Manager (e.g., Hide the City/Town layer before exporting to Excel to exclude city/town information).
