Learn More About Maptitude for Redistricting and the Caliper ArcGIS Extension for Redistricting at the NCSL Legislative Summit

NEWTON, MASSACHUSETTS (USA) - The National Conference of State Legislatures annual Legislative Summit is the largest and most substantive meeting of its kind in the nation. Each year more than 6000 legislators, staff, and other interested in public policy attend informative sessions on critical problems, to hear nationally renowned speakers, and to vote on policies to guide the advocacy efforts of the Conference. Caliper will be participating in the Redistricting and Elections Committee meetings and will be available to discuss Maptitude mapping software.

Caliper invites attendees to learn more about the market-leading Maptitude for Redistricting software, and the new Maptitude for Redistricting Extension for ArcGIS. Now redistricters who prefer Esri’s ArcGIS environment have access to the same features, ease-of-use, and analytical capabilities enjoyed by those using the original Maptitude for Redistricting software.

The Maptitude for Redistricting Extension for ArcGIS includes the most powerful functionality available for political redistricting and comes with the official Census geography, relevant demographic data, and voting age data, all stored in an Esri File Geodatabase. The intuitive interface is one that any redistricter can understand and master. The software can be used for redistricting electoral and administrative jurisdictions at any level of government.
