Make maps using manually imputed information or imported data, update its legend, theme, or layers, and automatically perform various data analysis tasks.

Maps are a very useful and clear way to present data. This program lets you present information from different sources in a map form to better illustrate the data you are presenting.
The program allows you to import data from MS Excel and Access, and then, it converts those data into a map that shows the information in graphic form. You can show additional data in your map, such as highways, transportation, sites of interest, and more. A}The program has many other functions and, although the results are visually attractive, the program is not easy to use. You will need to devote some time to learn how to use its different functions.

The main disadvantage I found is the cost, which is rather high. Thus, it is not for casual users. Also, as I've said, the learning curve may be steep, due to the many different functions of the program. Nevertheless, there are several videos and other instructional resources you can use to learn how to use all the program's functions. Thus, if you run a company which uses a lot of map-related data, this program can be a wise investment.

You can try the program for 30 days before deciding if you want to purchase it. To download the shareware version, you need to provide a valid e-mail address to receive the download link.
