Ultra Mileage

Fast Batch Route Mileage Computation

 

Ultra Mileage is a set of very fast batch route calculation tools. The primary tools are Ultra MileCharter and Ultra One2OneMileage. Ultra MileCharter is the Ultra version of the popular MileCharter products, and is used to calculate mileage charts,  Output can include travel times and estimated costs, as well as route distances. Charts can be created to/from point data views and/or selected groups of points. Charts can be produced using the fastest, shortest, or direct straight-line distances. Output is written to either a text file or a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.

 

Ultra One2OneMileage is the Ultra version of MPMileage, and is used to calculate a list of point-to-point routes in a database. Calculated distances, travel times, and costs are written back to the database. Locations can be coordinates or named locations. Support databases include Microsoft Access, Microsoft Excel, and ODBC connections.

 

Ultra Mileage requires a multi-core PC running Windows 7 or better; and Microsoft .NET Framework v4.5.2 or better. The full Contiguous-USA road pack requires 16GB RAM to use. Other road packs require less. Trunk-road-only road packs also require significantly less memory than their conventional counterparts.
