Freeway 2009 GIS Tools, released

Applied Spatial Technology, Inc, developer of add on tools for GIS, has released Freeway 2009 and Freeway 2009 Premium.

The standard US and Canadian versions have been enhanced with the up-to-date street networks from TIGER 2008 and 2008 Statistics Canada while the premium versions have incorporated NAVTEQ streets.

Freeway creates drive time polygons, as well as output table matrices of drive times and drive distances between multiple origins and multiple destinations.

Freeway is widely used in site selection to delineate trade areas and to analyze spatial relationships between locations based on drive time and distance. Users have the flexibility to specify road conditions and speed limit assignments.

Freeway can be used to produce:

* polygons representing the area which can be driven from a specified point within a specified amount of time under user specified traffic conditions
* point-to-point drive times between a single origin and single destination point
* tables of drive times between a set of one or more origins and a set of one or more destinations

Freeway is available as a standalone Windows application, as a MapBasic application for MapInfo Professional, or as a callable DLL for developers in 16-/32-bit Window applications.

Freeway 2009 comes packaged with a nationwide roadway system using current year TIGER data for the US version, and current year Statistics Canada data for the Canadian version.

Freeway 2009 Premium uses current year NAVTEQ data.

Freeway is fully documented and is designed for the end user.

Freeway calculates drive times quickly and efficiently, and provides flexibility for user specified road conditions and speed limit assignments.
