Caliper Corporation: 2017 Sustained Growth

NEWTON, MA (USA) - Caliper Corporation, founded in 1983 and headquartered in Newton, MA (USA), is a technology leader in the development of geographic information systems (GIS) and transportation mapping software.

Our sustained growth has been noted by an increasing number of sources. For example, CIO Review selected Caliper Corporation as one of the 20 most promising geospatial and GIS companies for 2017. "So what makes Maptitude different from other similar products?" CIO Review asked, "First released in 1995, the tool is specifically designed for data visualization and geographic analysis; it also provides expanded functionality, easy-to-use, cost-effective, and updated technology."

Caliper has seen many Maptitude competitors fall away, most recently the Microsoft MapPoint product. But we have always adhered to the belief that mapping applications can be both powerful and affordable, an approach that has left Maptitude as the dominant product for those needing a low-cost, intuitive, but surprisingly powerful mapping system.

Caliper Corporation was also identified as a Key Competitor in the data collection market by QY Market Research (June, 2017). This is a sector that is expected to experience a significant growth rate over the period 2016-2022. Maptitude is a robust and easy-to-use professional mapping tool that can be used by organizations requiring field mapping and mobile data collection. The extensive capabilities of Maptitude allow you to geographically understand and analyze information using mobile devices.

The Technavio report "Top 3 Trends Impacting the Global GIS Market in the Transportation Industry Through 2020" (December, 2016) states that "vendors develop application-specific GIS solutions, which are in high demand among retailers as they are more cost-effective than general purpose GIS solutions. For instance, TransCAD, a GIS software developed by Caliper Corporation, is designed for managing, analyzing, and displaying transportation data. The software combines GIS with transportation modeling to form a single integrated platform." The report predicts that increasing congestion will encourage the GIS market in the transportation industry to grow at a 12% CAGR.

Caliper's focus comes from our core organizational beliefs — whether it is our website, our user guides, our support services, or any of our industry leading software products — we take pride in delivering cost-effective solutions that allow our users to leverage the value in their data.
