Maptitude is a mapping software program created by Caliper Corporation that allows users to view, edit and integrate maps. The software and technology are designed to facilitate the geographical visualization and analysis of either included data or custom external data.

Maptitude is intended for business users but competes at all levels of the GIS market in many different sectors. It encapsulates the core GIS functionality of the Caliper mapping software suite of products, and integrates with Microsoft Office, data mapping from various sources including Microsoft Excel, and includes a proprietary BASIC-like programming language (Caliper Script) within a development interface (GISDK) that allows automation of the Maptitude environment.

The Caliper technology is used in the following end-user desktop software:

* Maptitude (for international users, with a primary market in the USA, but with tailored add-ons for the U.K., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand)

* Maptitude for Redistricting (for redistricting professionals)

* Maptitude for Precinct and Election Management (for county and state election offices)

* Political Maptitude (for political campaign strategists) [Discontinued in 2008]

* TransCAD (for transportation professionals)

* TransModeler (for traffic simulation)

The Caliper technology is also used in the following web-based software:

* Maptitude for the Web

* TransCAD for the Web

The Web development platform uses application source code that can be edited using Javascript, HTML and ASP.NET. Application templates (Mapplications) are used to create a web application or service. The default templates include Ajax applications and mashups that use Google Maps via the Google Map API.
