Welcome to the CDX Technologies August 2019 Newsletter


This week we announce the release of a new version of our Geographic Access Analysis template, which now provides radius reports based on driving distance as well as straight-line distance.   We also cover the new Maptitude support added to our CDXZipStream templates.


Here is a link to our latest Blog postings:



Geographic Access Analysis Template Update


Do you have the need to identify company locations or resources that are closest to a long list of customers?  We've talked about our Geographic Access Analysis template as a solution to this in prior blog articles and videos such as the following:


Geographic Access Analysis using Microsoft Excel


The template initially produces a straight-line "as-the-crow-flies" distance report so it can rapidly sort and compare locations, tens of thousands at a time.  This latest release now includes a driving distance report so that the top locations received can be sorted by driving distance as well.  Distance can be output in kilometers as well as miles and we've made improvements in calculation times.  The template also now supports Maptitude data as well Bing and Mappoint to reduce the cost when analyzing long lists of locations.


The Geographic Access Analysis template is now on sale at $99.95 and can be purchased in your online account in the "Buy Data Update" menu. This includes support and access to the latest template for 12 months. A demo of the template is also now available by contacting



Maptitude Support Added to CDXZipStream Templates


We updated all CDXZipStream templates that involve geocoding and routing to include Caliper Maptitude support. In addition to supporting Bing and Mappoint, a third option is now available for Maptitude.  To use it, just select Maptitude from the map data source dropdown, as shown below.



Adding Caliper Maptitude allows you to make an unlimited number of requests for a one-time cost of a license.  Just copy in your address data and press a button to calculate.  There is no need to learn the details about CDXZipStream or its formulas.


They are available to both registered versions of CDXZipStream and demo users.  All are digitally signed so they can be run in secure environments that require this. Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro language provides the automation that powers the templates as described in prior blog articles. These applications are available for download at the following link
