View Full Version : MileCharter v2.0 Released

MileCharter quickly and efficiently calculates mileage tables using Microsoft MapPoint.

MileCharter can be quickly set with a few clicks to batch compute hundreds if not thousands of route calculations. Both distances and times can be calculated. All output is to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.

A traditional "road atlas" table can be created by using the same source and destination locations. Alternatively the source and destination locations can be different, allowing numerous business functions such as serving customers or suppliers.

MileCharter can also calculate estimated route costs using MapPoint's own route cost estimates, or a more flexible rate table calculation. Use your own rate table and not someone else's!

v2 adds two license levels: Basic and Professional. New features include Text File Output (so you can now use it with OpenOffice!); Pause/Restart; and "Only Report Closest Features".

This latter feature is particularly useful. It can be used to ask MileCharter requests such as: "For each of my customers, find the three closest sales offices that are also within 30 miles".

Full details, examples, tutorial, and a free 14 day trial can be found here:


For electronic delivery Basic Licenses are US$60 each, and Professional Licenses are US$100 each. (Upgrade Licenses are US$50 each)
CD-ROM delivery will be available in a few days and will be US$15 more.

Depending on your location, VAT (EU) and Sales Taxes may apply. Volume discounts are available.
