Featured Testimonial: School Redistricting

The problem of school redistricting is related to that of political redistricting, and Maptitude is the dominant software product in that industry (see clients). The Maptitude product suite has many tools for school planners including a comprehensive redistricting system. School District Master Planning is supported through the combination of Maptitude and EMPAC.


There are many school districts and consultants using Maptitude for school redistricting, and the customer experience below speaks for itself:

"In 2013, my company made a decision to move from our existing GIS platform to Maptitude. We did this because our GIS had high annual licensing fees and expensive extensions. At first, my GIS analyst was concerned about such a sudden change, but he was able to get proficient in only about a week. Within two weeks, he was very comfortable handling his normal workload.


My firm serves school districts around the country, providing maps and demographic data to help with enrollment planning. Since changing to Maptitude, several clients have commented that the maps are easier to read, and provide more information than we used to be able to provide under our previous GIS. It was a good move. I just wish I had done it sooner.  


Thank you for saving me about $5,000, which is what I estimated a similar product would cost me."

Featured Maptitude Maps: Guns, Marriage, Voting, Cars: What Americans Google by State (USA)   

What do people most need in your state? Apparently voting information (19 states), car registrations (11 states), drivers licenses (6 states), marriage licenses and guns (5 states each) according to Google searches. Other top search results included how to obtain an ID in Illinois and New Mexico, how to start a business in Florida, and what is needed to live in Hawaii.


Caliper created the map below with Google Autocomplete, typing "What do I need in [insert state here]" into Google for each state, and then marking down the most commonly searched-for term.

The second featured map shows the per capita 2012 carbon dioxide emissions by state in metric tons.

By contrast, the low-population energy-producing states have the highest per capita CO2 emissions with Wyoming (115.8 tons), North Dakota (81.2 tons), and Alaska (52.8 tons) topping the list.
