MAPro is built and maintained with attentiveness to customer requirements. As such, the program provides detailed custom reports and saved searches to make data extraction easy. For reports, users can easily generate information about digital stations, total stations in a market, CP detailed reporting, move-in reports and much more. The saved searches in MAPro make finding a station's digital details, doing market analysis and exporting mailing labels as simple as clicking a button.

Digital Information

MAPro provides comprehensive digital information updated daily:

  • Digital station information (historical analog information)
  • Analog coverage area with population estimates
  • Digital contour coverage area with population estimates
  • Affiliation and DTV channel TV
  • DTV on-air date

When users are browsing a digital-only station, MAPro lists the digital information right at the top of the "Contacts and Station" tab (example shown below). For historical analysis purposes, MAPro has retained all analog station coverage contours. For stations that still operate an analog facility (e.g., some Class A and LPTV stations), both the analog and digital station information will be displayed. The sophisticated mapping program within MAPro displays a station's digital and historical analog contours together or separately. Users can turn certain categories (i.e., digital, CP, license, analog) on and off to accommodate custom searches.
