Driving directions

Top  Previous  Next

Driving directions in FleetEngine are a part of the normal XML output.


It only requires a street network as basis for the optimization and a field set up for road names.


An example output can be seen here (or in the TIGER sample output):





     <RoadName>Main Road</RoadName>




     <Text>Main Road for 0.083 km, then onto</Text>








The content of <Text> can be customized via ini file settings, TemplateString. See the supplied INI file for the default setup.

Elements within {} will be replaced with corresponding values when creating the text. Non ascii characters are supported.


The value of <Turn> is used for creating the <Text> field and can generally be ignored by users.


The default language is English.


Viewer application processes this a bit further by summing distances and times.
