One of the best reasons to use a GIS is to unearth and analyze the geographic components of your data. You can create bands (buffers) around map features, create districts, define areas of influence, perform surface analysis, and create density grids. TransCAD also makes it easy to overlay and aggregate data and calculate statistics.
TransCAD includes the Geographic Information System Developer’s Kit (GISDKTM). GISDK gives you the tools that you need to create a wide variety of products for delivering mapping and geographic analysis capabilities to your customers. Over 700 functions can be called from Caliper Script, a complete programming language for designing menus and dialog boxes (including toolbars and toolboxes) and for writing macros.
Data Access: TransCAD lets you create maps using your own data. Map data from dBASE files and text files directly, or access data from any ODBC compliant data source such as Access, Oracle, SQL Server, and many others. You can also use raster images such as satellite or aerial photographs directly in your maps. These images can be used as a means of reference or in conjunction with the map editing tools to create or edit geographic files.
