Maptitude 2017, a release of Caliper Corporation's popular GIS and mapping software, is now available. The 2017 version provides the most up-to-date and accurate data yet, the company says.

The Maptitude 2017 menu system redesign emphasizes user workflow. The new, yet familiar interface, streamlines the mapmaking process. Consistent terminology, logical feature groupings, and direct access to critical tools result in an improved user experience.

The updated streets allow for accurate address locating and street visualization, directions, drive-time rings and drive-time territories.

The boundaries (e.g., ZIP codes, counties and states) have updated demographics and Census data such as buying power/disposable income, banking compliance data and the 2015 Census ACS data.

Maptitude 2017 also ships with the January 2017 ZIP Code release, including a new telephone area code layer.

A new distance and drive-time tool creates an Excel table that lists the costs of travel between any number of origins and destinations.

If user vehicles have specified stop times in an Excel table, Maptitude 2017 can automatically apply them. Maptitude 2017 also allows users to specify a default stop time for all your destinations.

In addition, Maptitude 2017 now supports MapPoint territory files (*.ptm, *.est, *.axe) that do not have data columns or that have county and state information in separate columns.
