The key differentiator for MAPCITE is that it provides a simple user interface, designed for the non-technical user, yet enables the user to undertake analysis and visualizations that would be complex for a GI professional, using traditional GIS tools. This is an important differentiator to any existing or new player. The technology has to be able to handle vast quantities of data, perform exceedingly complex calculations and be as easy to use as Excel and Word.

In summary MAPCITE has succeeded because it has created a generalized solution, abstracted away from any one specific use case and has hidden that complexity from the user.

Our true innovation is our ability to model behaviour of actors/agents in the macro-economy like central banks, consumers e.g. using non-linear economic dynamics (aka chaos theory).
