View Full Version : MPCluster v1.2 Released: Support for Shaded Areas added

12-16-2010, 11:49 AM
MPCluster is our cluster analysis tool for Microsoft MapPoint datasets.

MPCluster v1.2 adds support for most MapPoint dataset types, including shaded areas (previous versions were limited to pushpin sets). v1.2 can also use dataset data fields to weight cluster centroids and/or constrain cluster sizes (eg. a population data field could be used to constrain all clusters to a range of total population).

v1.2 also adds the ability to estimate the number of clusters present in the dataset.

Possible applications include:

* Finding new locations for stores/depots
* Allocate territories for sales reps
* Finding incident hotspots
* Business intelligence and forensics
* Demographic analysis

MPCluster sells for US$120 per license, with volume discounts available.

The Excel export options require Microsoft Excel 2003 (or later). MPCluster supports Excel 2010.
