Maptitude Review: When Cost Really is Total Cost

Recent news coverage highlights the value that Maptitude brings to organizations. Maptitude mapping software has been featured in Directions Magazine as part of their Geospatial on a Budget series. Due to popular demand, Maptitude has a dedicated installment that features real user feedback and emphasizes the robustness of the software.

The Magic of Maptitude

In the words of Rebeckah Flowers of Directions Magazine, "If you're staring down an overwhelming stack of data, wishing for a magic wand to wave and get powerful analysis and great maps in a tool that is: simple to use, grows with your needs, easy to learn and a low entry-level price; then, according to the many readers that wrote in, Maptitude is your sparkling solution."

The Maptitude mapping software team is proud to be able to geospatially empower organizations of all sizes, in a diverse list of industries, and all over the world. GIS & geospatial don't have to be costly or complicated. Maptitude is setting the standard for mapping software that is low cost, usable by non-techies, and that extends the benefits of location intelligence to more people than ever before.

"Maptitude is a great alternative to [other mapping software]. Using Maptitude, I can easily create 3-D maps, heat/hot spot mapping, Areas of Influence (Thiessen Polygons), drive-time rings, flow maps (desire lines and spider maps), territory mapping, and spatial overlays (tagging features from one layer to another), trade area/site selection and much more."
