Focus On Maptitude:
Maptitude: Better Maps & Better Results

"Maptitude has radically altered GIS economics by including demographic data that in the past would have cost tens of thousands of dollars."  Los Angeles Times

Maptitude is a professional strength product and brings the highest quality location-based tools and information to our customers. Maptitude includes commercial grade maps from Here, a division of Nokia, that are considered to be the best in the industry. The Atlantic states that "Nokia Has Better Maps Than Apple and Maybe Even Google". 

Maptitude presents these maps as highly attractive and professional-grade graphics right out-of-the-box. No other Mapping system combines such an extensive amount of up-to-date data in presentation ready formats.

Not only that, but with Maptitude you can perform unlimited address and postal matching (also called pin-mapping or geocoding) allowing you to locate even the largest customer database for analysis.

Maptitude Mapping Software"The difference between Maptitude and similar products is that it is shockingly easy to use. After a few hours with most GIS packages I'm ready to throw myself on the couch, a pint of Ben and Jerry's in one hand, TV remote in the other. Not so with Maptitude." GCN

Tech Tip:
Analyze Crime Hotspots

Maptitude Map of Chicago Homicide Hotspots 2013Because most crime data have specific locations, it is easy to add the locations of accidents, citation issuances, arrests, registered sex offenders, suspects, and crime locations to a map. Maptitude analysis tools then let you determine spatial patterns and hotspots for various types of crimes. By identifying spatial patterns, law enforcement resources can be more effectively deployed for crime analysis and prevention.  

Maptitude is widely used to conduct crime mapping research and throughout the emergency services sector to prioritize law enforcement activities. For example, drug or prostitution stings can be based on where those crimes are most prevalent, and sobriety checkpoints can be identified by examining the locations of arrests and accidents involving impaired drivers. By cross-referencing data from multiple sources, such as crime incidents and suspects, it is even possible to prioritize an investigation for a connected series of crimes such as rape or arson.

The following steps illustrate how to create hot-spots around locations and to identify those peaks that require attention from law enforcement:

  1. Choose File-New, choose Map from the New File dialog box, and click OK. This brings you to the Create-a-Map Wizard.

  2. Choose the Map of my own data option.

  3. Browse for the Excel file containing your data. Choose the sheet in the Excel workbook that contains your data and has fields such as address and postal code. Click OK.

  4. Follow the prompts for locating your data by address until you reach the Type of Analysis step in the Create-a-Map Wizard.

  5. Choose the Density option. Click Next and follow the prompts. Maptitude creates a map of your data.

  6. Choose the Density of Your Data layer from the drop-down list on the toolbar at the top of the Maptitude screen to specify the working layer.

  7. In the Display Manager turn off the layer Your Data by clicking on the green check.

  8. Choose Tools-Surface Analysis-3D Map to display the 3D Map Properties dialog box.

  9. Choose DATA from the Field drop-down list, choose Miles or Kilometers from the Units drop-down list, and click OK. Maptitude creates a 3D figure window of your data.

  10. Use the tools and spinners in the 3D Toolbox to modify the 3D figure. For example, change the exaggeration value to make the peaks higher or lower.

To insert your results into a presentation you can choose File-Save As for each window to export your map and figure for use outside of Maptitude.
