The ArcIMS Route Server, available from GIMS, offers fast and accurate routing capabilities within the Internet Mapping Environment. It lets users perform rapid cross-country routing, set routing preferences (freeway preferences, shortest route or fastest route) and use precision settings to fine-tune results.
The server includes calculation of optimal routes based on time, distance and freeway preferences; point-to-point driving directions; accommodation of multiple stops along a route; ability to use precision setting to fine-tune results; and geocoding and reverse geocoding.
It can be used with a variety of clients from standard desktop or browser-based clients to custom browser, desktop or wireless applications. To get up and running quickly, ArcIMS developers can use the sample application included with the software, or they can choose to build their own custom solutions with .NET, Java, Active Server Pages (ASP), Java Server Pages (JSP), ColdFusion, or ArcXML-a GIS extension to standard eXtensible Markup Language (XML).
ArcIMS Route Server in conjunction with ArcIMS is a complete solution and is available in three variations, based on the geographic extent of your business. The data packaged with the solution is specially optimised for high-speed geocoding and routing. These are for users who are either based within a municipality, a province or within the borders of RSA. This allows a customer to be up and within a day using this commercial off-the-shelf routing solution.
The server provides point-to-point driving directions and fast, accurate routing and geocoding. It is a valuable addition to any ArcIMS software-powered website.
