Road Network Optimization

Time and mileage drive up all your costs, so it’s critical to know exactly how many miles and hours it takes to cover all the roads in a specific region. Imagine being able to draw a shape over a region of any size on a map, and immediately seeing the shortest possible route to travel.

If you’re a municipality, statewide organization, a company that needs to survey roads, or a contractor that needs to bid on a salt spreading/snow cleaning route, it’s critical to have accurate information on how many miles you will actually need to cover.

With Route4Me’s Road Network Optimization module, the first commercially available software of this kind, you could draw an area of almost any size on a map, and then Route4Me will plan an optimal route for you so that you can cover every section of road in the region in the shortest amount of time.

Unlike regular route optimization which optimizes the best sequence in which to visit many addresses on a map, Road Network Optimization optimizes how to visit road segments, while simultaneously taking into consideration one way streets, u-turn restrictions, so you can get an accurate representation of expected mileage.

  • Extract optimized routes to travel all the roads of a certain type in a region you pick
  • Dynamically determine road square footage to forecast asphalt, salt, concrete, etc. volumes
