Routing J server v2.0 for Europe. (Internet Focus News & Products).

Mapinfo have announced the availability of its Java based routing engine for countries across Europe. MapInfo Routing J Server v2.0 enables developers to add routing functionality to any web-based or windows-based application. This includes the ability to generate routes and driving directions as well as more sophisticated uses to solve logistical problems involving multiple destinations or for drivetime analysis.

Calculating either the shortest distance or quickest timed route between two or more points, MapInfo Routing J Server returns text-based turn-by-turn driving directions and or the spatial points that make up the path for the route. These in turn can be displayed on a map when integrated with other MapInfo development tools such as MapInfo MapXtreme, MapInfo MapMarker and MapInfo StreetPro.

Routing J Server is aimed at a large cross section of organisations including fleet management companies that need to reduce shipping and delivery times, companies wishing to improve the efficiency of their field based staff with the directions they need for their next call, Call centre operations that need to deliver accurate directions to customers via the internet or to any mobile device, and telecommunication operators deploying new mobile location based services to users on the move.

Routing J Server can take account of dynamic factors such as traffic and weather conditions, as well as preferences for road types or `no go' areas. Using the new COM client, Routing J Server can also be incorporated into Windows-based intranet and extranet solutions requiring customisation. In addition Routing J Server enables organisations to develop and host their own web-based routing applications, to their own specifications, bypassing the requirement to rely on standard third party solutions. The product consists of the MapInfo Routing. J Server, an API for building a Java or COM (Component Object Model) routing client, an XML interface, API documentation, as well as sample client and administrator applications.

Key features include:

* Available as Java component or COM Client

* Supports multi-point routing and drivetime analysis

* Built in intelligence to recognise one-way streets and turning restrictions

* Platform independent and saleable to meet demanding enterprise requirements

* Provides Dynamic Data Updates enabling the user to select and modify the speed or road classification attribute of any given road segment

* Includes an XML Interface to receive route requests and return directions
