“[Maptitude] imports and exports data back and forth to and from Excel, allows Dataviews to be edited from other geographic files (counts of point data within areas, distances from points or area centroids, etc.), allows color combinations based on templates or user choices, and even allows users to tap into Census data....In addition, the datasets that Caliper makes available for free for users are amazing.”

“Ease of moving territories, obtaining census data, and plotting territories to that data. Beautiful interface and several ways to customize the product and exports. The ability to pull in my older MapPoint files and data was a huge plus!”

“I have used Maptitude to expose undergraduate and graduate students to the power of GIS. The built in data and map layers allow the students easily perform advanced spatial analysis and data visualization with a minimal amount of training. The automated trade areas provide for advanced network analysis that can be fed into AI systems to provide a new dimension which have improved predictions. I would recommend this software to any company looking to bring spatial analysis capabilities to their organisation. The minimal cost is well worth it.”

“Maptitude offers a diverse array of analytical tools at an affordable price. It is a comprehensive and the most affordable GIS software available on the market. Maptitude is a standalone product and comes fully loaded. Apart from the standard analytical tools, Maptitude offers extensive capabilities for analyzing competing businesses in a particular neighborhood using adjacency tools. It also performs route analysis to determine driving directions or delivery routes that minimize logistics costs.”

“With the release of Maptitude 2019 it is now easier than ever to analyze and map your data. But Maptitude's ability to find patterns in your data is only half of the equation. The program allows you to create beautiful maps effortlessly. The maps can be tweaked and customized to convey the information to your targeted audience. For me, this makes Maptitude an excellent visual communication resource.”

“This system was awesome. I used to use it at a print and mail shop I worked at. We would upload mail lists and select data from the map to target areas for advertising. We also integrated it with custom inhouse software. It was really easy to use as well. If you can use Excel or Word, then you can use this. Just awesome!”

“I've had the good fortune, or misfortune, to use quite a few GIS software packages over the past few years and can assure you that Maptitude is streets ahead when it comes to ease-of-use. The trick with any GIS is to understand the terminology, and Maptitude communicates it's functionality through a common-sense menu structure. The result is that a new user is up and running with an extensive range of capabilities within a very short time." "The package offers ease of use, an extensive range of functions and capabilities, and a wealth of data. In fact, if I purchased the data separately, from any of multiple sources, the cost for data and restructuring would be over $20,000.”

I was in a bind when MS retired MapPoint. I discovered Maptitude in 2009 and have been using the software since then. Once you take time to use the various features, it becomes a joy to use when evaluating different market conditions/situations. I do enjoy using this software.”

“I highly recommend this piece of software to all sales managers out there who are struggling to keep track of their sales data and find trends in it.

“I believe that Caliper's Maptitude continues to provide more GIS-related features and more flexibility in defining and presenting data and map layers than MapPoint does. I also believe that the most comparable product to MapPoint in price, performance, and data included is Maptitude and not MapInfo or ArcView.”

“I have been extremely happy with the purchase of Maptitude. I must admit, I was a little skeptical at first when comparing Maptitude to MapInfo due to the large price difference. But after researching both platforms I felt that Maptitude's functionality gave us the most bang for the buck.

Creating maps is very easy, not only because the user's guide that comes with the software is helpful, but the training offered is top notch. I was able to receive one-on-one training without leaving the office. My training sessions were also available via download to reference when ever I needed.

All in all we couldn't be happier with our purchase.”

“Maptitude is an excellent GIS program and is priced very low considering the value it provides. To name just a few key benefits I've experienced after owning it for only a week: It has tons of geographic and demographic information; it's relatively easy for beginners; there are tons of online guides, training materials, and seminars; tech support is very responsive and helpful. I highly recommend this program to anyone looking for basic to complex functionality in a GIS program.”

“We use Maptitude extensively for running complex Territory Alignment scenarios. The depth of the product, its total utility and functionality is immense. Import-Export capability with Excel is seamless. It is easy to work with and Maptitude support is second to none. My complements to the Maptitude team: They have created a solid product and it is one of the best software investments we have made as an organization.”

“So we needed a product that would allow us to map where our customers are located and be able to analyze demographics. Overall, considering this is a one time buy and not a SaaS, it has excellent value. The ability to overlay your data with demographic information is awesome.”

“It is easy to figure out and does a good job at building basic maps out of spreadsheets. The maps are good looking and add a lot of value to data presentations without a significant time or effort outlay. I was able to make a point about regional market share that would have been very difficult to make without this software. We are able to quickly and easily make points about regional distributions without having to invest heavily in expensive much more robust software. Maptitude offered a good starting point for basic needs without a heavy learning curve.”


   G2 Crowd User in Hospital & Health Care
Paul Lucassen

“Maptitude 2019 adds features and enhanced capabilities, that make it a continued pleasure to work with. Even after years of use I come across new options that allow for quality analysis. Frequently now, I apply the facility location tool, which offers outstanding opportunities to relocate warehouses or stores. Used creatively, for instance in Service Logistics engineer allocation projects, finding the right location for a pudo or dropbox location is a breeze with this tool. Multiple scenarios can be calculated and analysed, and the results integrated in Excel- or Power BI models. Maptitude continues to deliver complemented with outstanding support and training.”

“Maptitude is excellent for doing geographic analysis projects looking at: where existing customers are and new ones might be (including using the built-in demographic data); identifying hot-spots, patterns and trends that can't be seen in Excel. It is really helpful with network design tasks - which sites are best: centers of gravity; visualizing size of flows between distribution centers; allocating volume to different depots.”

“We have found Maptitude to be a really useful piece of software. It allows us to quickly and easily represent various data geographically, and the ease of functionality and ability to layer data makes it really user friendly.

“Maptitude is incredibly user-friendly. It can be very intimidating to use a new geospatial tool without formal training. With Maptitude, I started with no training and quickly became the in-house expert at my company. We are locating new stores, optimizing existing footprints and quantifying local market opportunities. I learn something new every time I open Maptitude and it certainly has become the go-to tool for our geospatial analytics.”

“Maptitude has been an important tool for showing the geography of a variety of facilities and parameters, from rig trends by state, to patent trends by metro area, to the location of important infrastructure installations.

“The data is accurate and very visually appealing. What this will mean in understanding the world around me is enormous.

Having the power to analytically divide markets, populations, etcetera, will result in decisions with pinpoint accuracy.”

“Maptitude is better than ArcGIS Business Analyst for most of what I need. It is easy to create and export Excel files that contain lists of data points, and the associated information, within polygons. Another benefit is that the learning curve is not steep (and the help documentation is excellent).”

“Maptitude is a great alternative to [other mapping software]. Using Maptitude, I can easily create 3-D maps, heat/hot spot mapping, Areas of Influence (Thiessen Polygons), drive-time rings, flow maps (desire lines and spider maps), territory mapping, and spatial overlays (tagging features from one layer to another), trade area/site selection and much more.”

Viktor Keenan

“As far as ease of use goes Maptitude takes the prize, Maptitude is definitely easier to use right out-of-the-box and the learning curve for advanced functions is shorter than with MapInfo. As for presentations, Maptitude takes the prize again over MapInfo. The folks at Caliper took great pains and effort to make a GIS software application that is as user friendly as possible. They took the cartographic prep-work out of the equation, so that the user can spend less time trying to make the map look pretty and can focus on doing the actual analysis and presentation.
