Several testimonials on the use of Maptitude in various sectors are listed here:

Banking: "We switched to Maptitude....You can map your loans and the census tracts are updated for 2010 Data." -CRCM Compliance Officer; Maptitude is wonderful. It is what I use." -Kathleen Blanchard CRCM 

Retail: "I believe that Caliper's Maptitude continues to provide more GIS-related features and more flexibility in defining and presenting data and map layers than MapPoint does." -Steve Hendel, Office Depot       

Site Location: "Want to know whether a certain franchise is really a good opportunity in your area, you could profit from a GIS. Unfortunately, GIS software...has been rather hard to use, and the demographic data needed to make it worthwhile has often been frightfully expensive. That is now changing [with] Maptitude." -L.A. Times

Healthcare: "Maptitude supports many different GIS formats which are simply not available in other GIS software...[and] has a significantly flatter learning curve than other GIS software. You get a fully functional GIS and extensive data for 1/3 the price of other GIS products." -Dr. Richard E. Hoskins Washington State Dept. of Health

Tech Tip:
Analyze Populations & Their Health Care Accessibility

Ring overlay map with resulting demographics for each ringThe dynamics of health and health care provision vary substantially across regions, and Maptitude allows you to map these differences in population density, age distribution, disease prevalence, race, ethnicity, poverty and the ability to access care. Maptitude includes the geocoding and geographic information system (GIS) tools that are critical in linking patient and population locations to local demographics to explore these relationships.

Maptitude is widely used to conduct research in the health care sector and in the fields of public health, disease mapping, and epidemiology. Maps help to visualize health care information and enhance the understanding of the health care landscape. Maptitude mapping software enables users to find data about hospitals, health workers, at risk populations, and more.

The following steps illustrate how to create rings around hospitals and to identify those people able to access these medical service locations:

  1. Choose File-New, choose Map from the New File dialog box, and create a General Purpose map of your study area.

  2. In the Display Manager, expand the Landmark layer branch, and then the Landmark Feature Display branch.

  3. In the Landmark Feature Display branch, right-click on Hospital and choose Show Feature Class. The hospitals are displayed on the map.

  4. Make the Landmark layer the working layer by choosing it from the drop-down list on the Standard toolbar or by right-clicking on the layer in the Display Manager and selecting Make Working Layer.

  5. Using the Select by Pointing tool, click on a hospital location in the map to filter it for further analysis.

  6. Choose Tools-Geographic Analysis-Bands. Choose the Fixed Sizes method, type "0.5, 1, 2" in the Sizes edit box, and choose the units for the rings.

  7. Click the Overlay tab, check Compute Overlay, and click OK.

  8. When prompted, type a file name for the new ring/bands map layer, and click Save. Maptitude creates the rings and adds the new layer to the map.

  9. Choose Window-Tile Horizontally. You should now have a map and a table/dataview window visible. The Overlay table shows the demographics of the hospital's service area.

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

Toxic Release Inventory Reporting Facilities and Seismic Hazards    

This month we showcase a map created by "The recent nuclear catastrophe in Japan makes it crystal clear that nuclear facilities in seismic hazard zones are at high risk. Similarly, facilities in seismic hazard zones that store and use quantities of toxic chemicals are also at high risk to accidents resulting in environmental and human harm."
