GIS Software for Municipal Government

Maptitude is the most cost-effective GIS software available. It is now affordable for any level of government to produce and update the maps they need.

Maptitude maps are a great way to share planning information with the public. The reports are simple to create, and they are in an easy-to-understand format. The software is a valuable tool for:

  • city planners,
  • zoning officials,
  • tax assessors,
  • school administrators,
  • and other government officials

For example:

  • Assessors can map parcels and identify properties
  • School departments can create school districts based on demographic trends and create bus school bus routes
  • Conservation commissions can map environmentally sensitive zones and buffers, track invasive species, and monitor wildlife habitats
  • Municipal departments can inventory infrastructure
  • Planners can identify areas for economic development or open space preservation
  • Highway departments can plan for road closures, detours, and maintenance
  • Emergency management departments can visualize the impact of flooding or landslides, identify prime locations for emergency shelters, and assess neighborhood response times

Included with Maptitude are the Census Place and County Subdivision outlines. These come from the U.S. Census Bureau for mapping cities, towns, and municipalities. Maptitude also supports numerous geographic and image file formats making it possible for officials to access and display data from numerous sources.

Many municipalities need to redraw municipal ward and district boundaries. This is done after the decennial Federal Census. Municipal redistricting is influenced by:

  • Constitutional doctrines
  • Judicially mandated standards
  • Voting laws
  • Local law

The City/County Edition of Maptitude for Redistricting is the best software to get the job done. This version comes with the data for your city or county, all ready to use.

“Maptitude is a great alternative to [other mapping software]. Using Maptitude, I can easily create 3-D maps, heat/hot spot mapping, Areas of Influence (Thiessen Polygons), drive-time rings, flow maps (desire lines and spider maps), territory mapping, and spatial overlays (tagging features from one layer to another), trade area/site selection and much more.”

PSSG How PSSG Used Maptitude to Create New Police Districts
As population growth and changes led to an imbalance in the workloads of police districts, the San Francisco Police Department needed to redraw the police districts, taking into account a large amount of data, such as the number of service calls and incidents, response time, population, and the location of key infrastructure.
Entropy Land Use Mix How to Measure "Land Use Mix" using Entropy in Maptitude
Land use mix calculations are useful to local municipalities in quantifying access to services. The tool looks at a specific land use category and compares that to other types within the same geography. This entropy measure quantifies the balance of types using a score of 0 to 1 to describe equitable access.
