Mapping: Shortest Route distance calculation?
  • Alexander     Alexander April 24, 2013 3:37PM
    Hi all,

    I would like to calculate the distance between 2 addresses based on the shortest route. The existing function 'Lat_Lon_Distance' returns the surface straight-line distance.

    Has anyone done this before? Or do you have suggestions how I can do this?

    Thanks in advance! Regards, Alexander

    Alex - Omniscope itself is unaware of road routing, traffic conditions etc. unless all this data is in the local data set...and even then Omniscope does not have built-in optimization algorithms, so it cannot do this unaided.

    If you have a subscription to a full GIS Server that provides this service, Omniscope can probably use the web service to request and receive the shortest distance data from the remote server and add it to the data set.

    ESRI Arc GIS is one such web service with which Omniscope is being increasingly well integrated, but there are others which may be used.
