Tech Tip:
Using the Shortest Path Toolbox to Save Routes as Selection Sets

The best route can mean different things to different people. To some people, the best route is the one that is shortest in terms of mileage while to others, the best route is the fastest route. You use the Shortest Path toolbox in Maptitude to find your best route. In Maptitude 2013 you can now view the resulting routes as a selection set to allow you to save them as part of your Workspace, and to better manage/modify the paths.

Map with route selection setThe following steps illustrate these new features by walking you through creating routes with the selection option in Maptitude 2013:

  1. Choose File-New, choose Map from the New File dialog box, and click OK to display the Maptitude Create-a-Map Wizard.

  2. Choose the General Purpose Map option, choose Postal/ZIP Code from the scroll list, type a postal/ZIP Code in the Name box, and click Finish.

  3. Choose Street from the drop-down list on the Standard toolbar to make Street the working layer.

  4. Choose Tools-Routing-Shortest Path or click Shortest Path Button on the Standard toolbar to display the Routing toolbox.

  5. Choose Length from the Minimize drop-down list.

  6. Click Options to display the Shortest Path Options dialog box, choose Selection from the Selection Set drop-down list, and click OK.

  7. Click Mark a Stop Button, then click on the map for your starting location and again for your final destination. Maptitude displays the shortest distance route between the two locations where you clicked.

  8. Click Clear Stops Button. Maptitude clears the route. 

Maptitude displays your final route as a selection set in the map.
