Caliper Offers Updated Brazil Data for Use with Maptitude 2013

NEWTON, MASSACHUSETTS (USA) - Caliper is excited to announce a new Brazil Data Package! The product includes a wealth of data and functionality not available in any other software.

The Brazil data includes an up-to-date street layer with address data for geocoding and travel time information for computing routes and travel-time rings. Also included are building footprints for many urban locations, railroads, and comprehensive named landmarks that range from public facilities to commercial buildings including shops, restaurants, and retail stores.

Detailed demographic data from the 2010 Census are provided for states, districts, subdistricts, metropolitan regions, municipalities, bairros, census tracts, and census micro-, macro-, and meso-regions. At the most detailed tract level, over 400 fields of demographic data describing population, race, income, housing type, housing tenure, water supply, access to sanitation, access to electricity, household size, and age are included. For all other levels of geography, over 4000 fields of demographic data are provided with many of the fields further divided by race, age, sex, and family relationship.

Maptitude ships with one country of your choice (currently the U.S.A., Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, France, Germany, India, Ireland, ItalyMexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, and United Kingdom), and additional packages can be purchased separately for US$595 as they become available.

You can now switch between the countries you have purchased. Doing so refreshes the Maptitude interface with country-specific tools such as those for finding, pin mapping (geocoding), routing, and the Create-a-Map Wizard.

Also, new Map Libraries allow you to easily create attractive geographic and demographic maps, while locating unlimited numbers of addresses and territory-based records.
