Maptitude Online Redistricting Beta Released

NEWTON, MASSACHUSETTS (USA) - Caliper Corporation is pleased to announce that the web-based redistricting software, Maptitude Online Redistricting (MORe), is now available to qualified clients for evaluation.

Maptitude Online Redistricting is web-based redistricting software designed for governments or organizations that want to provide their members or the general public with a means to draw and report redistricting plans. Because the PC and online versions share common file formats, plans developed online can be electronically submitted to the central redistricting office, opened in the PC-based software, and analyzed to the full extent as if they had been created using the PC-based software. 

MORe builds on the success of Maptitude for Redistricting, the professional mapping tool for political redistricting. Maptitude for Redistricting is used by a supermajority of the state legislatures, political parties, and public interest groups. Designed with the help of redistricting professionals, state legislatures, and political parties, Maptitude for Redistricting has the features redistricters want and is easy to learn and use.

The web-based redistricting software, Maptitude Online Redistricting (MORe), is currently being evaluated by several states and counties. If your state or organization is planning to provide redistricting capabilities to the public, please email or call Caliper Sales at 617-527-4700. Caliper will set up MORe on a server with your state's data and establish a testing period for you to evaluate the application.
