The various routing parameters are set in the Routing Parameters box in the main One2OneMileage dialog box:




Costs are calculated using a rate table, which is set by pressing the Rate Table Costs button. This uses the same mechanism as Ultra MileCharter, and is discussed further on the Setting Road Costs and Types of Rate Table pages.


The chart's distance units are specified using the Distance Units drop-down box, and are typically miles or kilometers. The Time Units can be set to Hours or Minutes.


Costs, distances, and time units will be enabled or disabled according to what kind of output data you have selected.


The Find box lets you choose the type of route to find. Because the road pack will have already been optimized to find either the fastest routes or the shortest routes, only one of these will be visible. In addition to the route calculation (fastest or shortest), there is the option to calculate Straight Line distances. Straight Line finds the "as the crow flies" straight line distance between two points. Technically, this is defined as the Great Circle distance. Note that the Straight Line option can not be used to calculate travel times or cost estimates.
