Welcome to the CDX Technologies June
This week we cover a new free online tool to generate
ZIP Code distance reports. We also provide an update on support of
Caliper's Maptitude software with CDXZipStream.
Here is a link to our latest blog posting:
Free ZIP Code Distance Report
We just expanded our offering of free online tools
with a ZIP
Code Distance Report. All you need to enter is
two US ZIP Copes in this mobile-friendly web application.
The output report is shown below and contains the straight-line
distance, driving distance, distance type, route map and the latitude
and longitude for both ZIP Codes.
The distance can be optionally specified in miles, kilometers or
nautical miles. Bing Maps is used for the driving distance calculation
and displayed map. CDXGeodata is
used for the straight-line distance calculation. The results
will match the CDXZipStream formula for straight-line distance
CDXDistance and driving distance with CDXRouteBing.
You'll find this to be a useful tool if you are away
from your PC and Excel and want to look up a route on your phone or
other device. Our website also has other free online tools for
demographics, ZIP Code lookups and radius reports.
Update on Maptitude Support
As discussed in our April newsletter we are working on
an update to CDXZipStream to work with Caliper's
Maptitude mapping software. We are currently in beta test for
this product and working on updates to our web site to support it.
Release of this product is now expected to be in mid-July.
Two new functions will be added for geocoding and
routing named CDXRouteMaptitude and CDXLocateMaptitude. These
functions will work in a similar fashion to those used for Mappoint
and Bing. Existing CDXZipStream customers will be able to optionally
add them to any current version of CDXZipStream. CDXZipStream
originally started with support of Microsoft Mappoint which was
obsoleted by Microsoft in 2014.
The expected price for this update is $99.95. This does
not include Maptitude itself which is a separate
purchase. Our initial release will only support the US
version of Maptitude and is compatible with Maptitude 2014 and
If you would like to be notified upon release please

functionality before buying.
