Massachusetts: Caliper Corporation, a U.S. based developer of mapping, redistricting, transportation, and GIS software, has announced a new “Spain Data Package” to be used with its Maptitude Geographic Information System (GIS). The new combination will offer the benefits of both desktop mapping and spatial analysis. It includes administrative boundaries for the whole of Spain. It also integrates with Google Earth for any location both inside and outside of Spain.
The package includes an up-to-date 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. It comes loaded with country-specific tools such as those for finding, pin mapping (geocoding), routing, and creating maps.
