Caliper Offers Updated New Zealand Data for Use with Maptitude 2013

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

The New Zealand 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.

Over 1000 fields of demographic data describing population, population by gender, population by age, birthplace, ethnicity, language spoken, marital status, educational attainment, income, employment, dwellings, vehicles, and rent are included. The data are from the 1996, 2006, and 2006 Census and are provided for mesh blocks and regions. Eighteen fields of demographic data from the 2006 Census are provided for Area Units, Community Board Boundaries, Health Board Boundaries, Election Districts, Mäori Districts, Region Council Boundaries, Territorial Authorities, Urban Areas, and Wards.

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.
