    Help with multiple routes

    Hi all,

    I run a business that operates five separate routes covering several counties. I'm trying to optimize each route and eliminate overlaping deliveries, but I can't figure out how to display all of the routes on one map. Is it possible for mappoint to take all of the information and create five optimized routes based on their current territories? Also, is there a way to color code the push-pins so that, for example, route 50= red, route 51= blue, etc. Any help on this matter would be extremely appreciated!!

    P.S. I am using Mappoint2006

    Mike

    Hi,

    I lost the URL, but please do a search on this forum. There is someone who has done multiple routes and optimizing.

    You cannot color pushpins, but you can choose a lot of pushpins or add your own bitmaps, so you have the color what you wants.

    Data2Map

    There is a product called Data2Map (www.data2map.com) that does this sort of stuff. The price is $149 - might be worth a look to save yourself some time and grief.

    Ciao,

    There's also TourSolver which does true multi-route optimization, but costs quite a bit more than Data2Map. We sell TourSolver to North America, and we will be selling Data2Map again when the new version exits beta.
