Caliper has announced an updated Australia Data Package for use in its Maptitude mapping software.
The Australian data includes an updated 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. An updated Local Government Areas layer based on 2013 boundaries is also included.
Maptitude 2014, the latest release of Maptitude, combines several significant enhancements in productivity and high quality output. Finished reports are now accessible via a single click, allowing direct sharing of your geographic analysis. Map backgrounds can be switched to show aerial photo-imagery or terrain, adding realistic and relatable elements to your presentations. Maps can now be visualised in 3D.
Maptitude ships with several country-specific tools, such as those for finding, pin mapping (geocoding), routing, and creating maps.
