-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

Populations & Their Health Care Accessibility
The 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.

Toxic Release Inventory
Reporting Facilities and Seismic Hazards
This month we showcase a map created by Maptivist.com. "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."
