RouteFinder 3.00 for MapInfo - What is new ?
Here is a quick summary of the exciting new features in this latest version of RouteFinder:
Now the dynamic segmentation options can be used in Batch Route, Nearest N Centres and Travelling Salesman optimizations.
Nearest N Centres
This function finds the nearest N number of points from a selected start point or points. A very quick function that uses distance or time.
Multiple Speed Files
More than one speed file can be created, so that it is now very easy to switch between peak and off-peak road speed or even walking speeds!
This uses two tables and then generates a route from row 1 of the first table to row 1 of the second table, and so on.
Although there are some limitations on this option, it presents some nice looking isochrones rather than the spiky polygons produced by previous versions of RouteFinder.
Extended Data Check
This checks for object errors at network creation time and then presents a report on possible errors with the network that may need further investigation.
Drive Time Accuracy
Drive Time polygons can now use dynamic node adding to produce even more accurate isochrones.
Updating a Point File with Time and Distance
It is now very easy to attach a time and distance to a point data set. This might be used to see how far away pupils live from a school.
You are no longer limited to a number of points for most batch functions in the Professional version. In the Standard version the limit has been raised for most functions.
Professional Version only:
You can now check that the links break at the nodes to make a topological network.
This function checks for links that intersect each other without a node being present. This may indicate errors in topology.
