Welcome to the CDX Technologies April
This week we cover a free Radius Demographics template
for CDXZipStream and also the upcoming support of Caliper's Maptitude
Here is a link to our latest blog posting:
Distance Calculations with CDXDistance2WP
Free Radius Demographics Template
We now offer a free Excel template that can be used to
get key U.S. ZIP Code demographic data for a radius area. The
template can be download here.
Demographic data fields provided are: population, median age, median
age by gender, persons per household, median household income, and
median house value. Demographics are sourced from the 2010 Decennial
Census ZCTA data, with the exception of household income and house
value, which are from the latest 5-year aggregated data of the
American Community Survey.
The template is used with our Microsoft Excel add-in
CDXZipStream Demographic, Premium and ACS versions. Just enter a
target ZIP Code (which will be the center of the radius) and up to
three radius area distances. An overall radius report summary
is provided as well as demographics for each ZIP code within each
More information on this template can be found in the
Support of Caliper's Maptitude Software
We expect to announce in the June 2019 timeframe
support of Calipers' Maptitude software
with CDXZipStream. Two new functions, CDXRouteMaptitude
and CDXLocateMaptitude, will be added for geocoding and
routing. These functions will work in a similar fashion to
those used for Mappoint and Bing Maps. Existing CDXZipStream
customers will be able to optionally add them to any current version
As you may be aware, CDXZipStream originally started
with support of Microsoft Mappoint. Mappoint was discontinued
in 2014 and we changed CDXZipStream to support Bing Maps, the
recommended replacement by Microsoft.
While Bing Maps offers greater accuracy and worldwide
coverage, it is a transaction-based system with a very complex
licensing model. As with Mappoint, Maptitude installs locally
on your machine and your only cost is the one- time license fee
regardless of the number of times you use it. Large-scale
analysis projects can be performed with Maptitude that otherwise would
have been prohibitively expensive with Bing enterprise licenses.
