NEWTON, MASSACHUSETTS (USA) - Caliper wants to turn real estate agents, site planners, and home buyers into cartographers with a new mapping tool designed to visualize demographic data.
Caliper launched Maptitude MassStats, a free web-based software tool designed to let anyone explore data for Massachusetts such as education, crime, environment, and election results. MassStats is a valuable real estate tool that will help organizations have a better understanding of location. Companies can look at where they can relocate to be near public transportation, while families can identify a safe neighborhood with good schools.
The idea is to help people get more value out of the complex and de-centralized big data already publicly available. If that data can be plotted on a map, it will be easier for organizations and the public to make decisions, Caliper executives said at the company's offices in Newton, MA (USA).
It's taking "the often overly complex and unusable government data, and through mapping bringing a more intuitive and powerful form of interaction," said Howard Slavin, President of Caliper Corporation.
With MassStats, anyone can choose to view data down to the town and street level, see commuter rail stops, school district scores, hospital locations, and even crime statistics. The data are all presented with user-friendly maps. You simply choose from a menu the information that you would like to see, and a color-coded map of cities and towns is displayed. You can use tools to zoom in and out on the map and can click on a city or town to see specific data for that community in a table.
