Welcome to the CDX Technologies June 2019 Newsletter


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 greater. 


If you would like to be notified upon release please email with this request. A demo will be available for you to try out the functionality before buying.
