Caliper Offers Updated Canada Data, Including Postal Points, for Use with Maptitude 2014

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

The Canada 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. Also new for 2014 is a postal code point layer with 852,781 records of six-character postal code locations.

Over 600 fields of demographic data describing population, age, dwelling units, marital status, family size, family composition, and language spoken are included. The data are from the 2011 Census and are provided for: Census Designated Place Areas, Divisions, Metropolitan Areas, Subdividions, and Tracts; Dissemination Areas; Federal Election Districts; and Provinces. Additional data from the 2006 Census describing educational attainment, employment, mode of commute, ancestry, earnings, and income are provided for Census Divisions, Census Subdivisions, and Provinces.

Maptitude ships with one country of your choice and additional packages can be purchased separately for US$595. You can 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.
