Editor's review

This is a software tool that can create a table of distances using the MS MapPoint.

MPMileCharter is an add-in utility for Microsoft MapPoint. The tool will give you mileage charts. It can give you travel times and estimated costs, as well as route distances. Individual pair of points or distances between groups of locations, as in the MapPoint pushpins, can be determined. Charts can be created to/from individual locations or groups of pushpins. Fastest, shortest, or direct straight-line distances are ways one could calculate the distances between these points. The set of data can be in MS Word or Excel spreadsheet formats. Determining the fastest and shortest routes can be done in the Pro edition. In fact all the route calculation options available with the MapPoint can be used. These include fastest/shortest/preferred-roads/straight-line routes, road speeds, road preferences, rest stops, overnight stays, and avoid polygons algorithms. The tool supports both the North American and European editions of MapPoint and versions 2006, 2009, 2010, 2011.

The program is able to do batch calculations, thus processing thousands of routes, large mileage charts are possible with this tool. Whether for the convenience of your customers or managing any business operations based on a large fleet of vehicles, or where an army of salesmen use company cars, or get paid for gas expenses. "Per mile" rates can be defined for specific distance intervals, or a fixed cost, such as delivery charges, assigned to an interval. Large processing jobs can be paused and restarted the next day. These are truly nice processing features. The tool will operate in XP, Vista and even Windows 7. This is a very handy application.

Publisher's description

Calculate Mileage Charts and Tables with Microsoft MapPoint.
Calculate tables for serving customers and suppliers, or to create "road atlas" tables.
Can output route distances, travel times and/or estimated costs to Microsoft Excel workbooks or text files.
Supports ALL MapPoint routing options including fastest/shortest/preferred-roads/straight-line routes, road speeds, road preferences, rest stops, overnight stays, and avoid polygons. Supports both the North American and European editions of MapPoint (versions: 2006, 2009, 2010, 2011). With the ability to batch process thousands of routes, large mileage charts become practical compared to manual calculations.
Requires MS Windows 7, XP, or Vista; and the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0. Also requires Microsoft Excel (32 bit only) for the Excel-export option.
New "closest only" option allows the closest destinations to be sorted and quickly found. For example, this could be used to find the closest service locations to specific customers.
The rate table feature allows sophisticated route cost calculations. "Per mile" rates can be defined for specific distance intervals, or a fixed cost assigned to an interval (eg. for delivery charges).
The new pause/restart function allows very large processing runs to be restarted the next day.
Supports the extra large spreadsheets of Excel 2007. Earlier versions have a limit of 256 columns. When using these earlier versions, MPMileCharter can span large charts across multiple tables.
Virtually all features are provided in the Basic License for US$60. The Professional License (US$100) adds the "Report Closest Only", and Pause/Restart features. The free 14 day trial includes use of all of these features.
