Importing to Microsoft streets and trips RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to import an origin zip code and destination zip code, to have Streets and trips calculate the distance between the two zip codes. Is this possible? I do not require the detailed directions or maps but need the distances between all designated trips.

  • You can create pushpins, and then create each route from the pushpins. It sounds like you might have a lot, and this would get very tedious very quickly, if you were doing it by hand.

    The solution is to invest in MapPoint (Streets&Trip's big brother intended more for businesses). MapPoint has exactly the same routing options but includes an API. This could be coded to perform automated batch processing. 

    And yes, we have a product that would do exactly this, reading each location pair from a database, and then writing the results back again. It is called MPMileage and there's a free 14 day trial:  http://www.mpmileage.com
