Do you need to calculate large numbers of route distances, travel times, or route costs between many locations in Caliper Maptitude? For example, you might need to calculate the costs to charge your customers by servicing them from particular specific. Or perhaps you need a distance table like that found in a road atlas?
If so, then MileCharter can solve your problems. MileCharter is designed to batch-calculate mileage tables and charts in Maptitude. Output can be in the form of distances, travel times, and/or cost estimates. All of Maptitude's routing options are supported, including a wide range of road types and speeds. MileCharter can also report only the closest destinations, or those that are within a specific distance or travel time. The resulting tables can be written to a Microsoft Excel workbook, or a text file.

MPCluster is a cluster analysis tool for Caliper Maptitude. MPCluster finds clusters (groups) in Maptitude point and area data layers. Cluster sizes can be determined in a number of ways including minimum/maximum number of component data points, and maximum cluster radius. In contrast to the MapPoint version, the Maptitude version supports two different clustering algorithms: K-Means and Hierarchical. The resulting clusters can be drawn as new map layers. Your input data can be colored according to its cluster allocation by using a joined data view. Cluster allocations can also be written our to Microsoft Excel.

Note: MPCluster has a minimum requirement of Microsoft .NET 4.0, and Caliper Maptitude 2014.

Results are written to the same database. Supported databases include Microsoft Access, ODBC connections, Microsoft Excel, and Maptitude data views.
MPMileage supports all of MapPoint's routing options. Start and end locations can be specified using pushpins, street addresses, or geographic coordinates.
