basic mapping software Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply

I've been asked by my company to find some inexpensive and basic mapping software that our CAD operators can use without GIS expertise. They will need to make small (maybe 6" square) black and white maps for use on cover pages for engineering projects. I've been looking into some products by Delorme, as well as MapPoint, Maptitude, BusinessMap, etc...Can anyone suggest a cost-effective way of importing street maps from an existing database, and making minor edits as needed (such as altering street routes or digitizing future building areas)? Thanks.

The Maptitude mapping software has extensive mouse driven vector editing tools, plus you can also add map features to a geographic file using a digitizing tablet to trace over paper maps or drawings.


You can also use aerial photographs, satellite images, or scanned versions of paper maps, including those available on the internet from TerraServer-USA and Google Maps, to assist you in editing. For more information please see http://www.mappingsoftware.com.
