We have just released the Caliper Maptitude port of our MPMileage batch point-to-point mileage calculation product.
Input locations are read from a database table, and the results are written directly back to this table. MPMileage supports all of Caliper's route finding options, including fastest routes, shortest routes, and straight line distances.
The Maptitude version supports most of the features of the MapPoint version but works as an add-in with Caliper Maptitude
We have just released the Caliper Maptitude port of our MPCluster analysis product.
The original MapPoint version used the K-Means algorithm, but the new Maptitude version also adds the option of using a Hierarchical algorithm.

The Maptitude version also supports Maptitude's sophisticated
We have just released "MileCharter for Maptitude" - a version of our popular MPMilecharter add-in for Caliper's Maptitude GIS product.
MileCharter batch calculates route distances, travel times, and cost estimates between two groups of data points. For example, it can calculate the driving distances from all of your customers to all of your sales offices.
