Alternative to GE Smallworld
Maptitude is a robust and easy-to-use professional mapping tool that is a perfect alternative to GE Smallworld for use in the energy and telecommunications industries. Maptitude provides all the features that your organization requires in order to uncover answers to your market questions.
The extensive capabilities of Maptitude allow you to geographically understand and analyze relationships among the varied energy and telecoms sectors.
Maptitude costs only US$695 and is packaged as a one-stop-solution, shipping with all the tools and data required by energy analysts and policymakers for site assessment, data sharing, and visualization.
Planning and Managing Telecoms
Geographical data is critical for network planning and management in the telecommunications sector. Map-based insights help telecom providers understand network capacity, demand and supply, gaps in coverage, and store locations.
Maptitude enables more accurate market, demographic and spatial analysis. Maptitude improves decision making related to customers, competition and physical locations, and supports network planning and marketing.
In Maptitude, the demographic analysis tools can be used with customer, vendor, and stakeholder addresses or GPS locations. Maptitude can then operate with existing systems or as a map-based inventory and asset management solution to identify the best locations for new sites and to explore service provision.
Maptitude is an indispensable tool for site assessment and service coverage mapping. Maptitude can assist in locating telecom facilities such as cell phone towers, and has line-of-site, terrain, and 3D modeling tools that allow you to model and buildings. By geographically visualizing data, such as the Maptitude demographics combined with your sales information, you can make smarter decisions about cable, towers, and service areas. Maptitude also assists in the placement of infrastructure to better support recovery and resiliency when faced with natural or manmade disasters and emergencies.
In addition to telecoms, Maptitude excels in geographical analysis for optimizing the position of sites in the Energy Industry. For example, Maptitude can assist in locating nuclear reactors by identifying sites away from areas of high population density and man-made hazards, while overlaying seismic, meteorological, geological, and hydrological map layers. Renewable energy systems are vulnerable to weather and climatic conditions, but combining renewable energy sources into a hybrid system such as solar-wind helps mitigate these dependencies. Maptitude is well suited to mapping locations with favorable energy potential, and for geographically exploring related environmental and economic considerations. For example, Maptitude can map topography and proximity to electric transmission lines when exploring locations for a wind farm.
Maptitude provides a platform that supports data sharing for community outreach, as well as for business data access, asset management, network information updates, customer identification, and report preparation.
Maptitude supports location queries and has one of the largest file format import/export libraries in the industry that encompasses GPS, CAD and GIS file types.
Transmission and distribution field technicians can use the GIS visualizations and accurate GPS support provided by Maptitude to assist with work order management. Maptitude can provide detailed national street maps (for the USA, Canada, and more...) that are useful when managing staff in the field, especially when they are on loan for emergencies from other states and countries.
Maptitude combines a comprehensive map database with an attractive and easy to use graphical interface for viewing and manipulating data. When combined with your own or 3rd party energy market data you can enhance network maps and business information with weather intelligence, topography, rights-of-way, and field data.
With Maptitude you can create polished reports with a single click, allowing direct sharing of geographic analyses. You can seamlessly switch map backgrounds to show aerial photo-imagery or terrain, adding realistic and relatable elements to presentations.
