More Accurate and Efficient Routing in Latest Release of ArcIMS Route Server

Includes Support for Web Application Developer Framework


Redlands, California ArcIMS Route Server 9.2, the latest version of ESRI's routing extension to ArcIMS, is now shipping.  New routing options and parameters in ArcIMS Route Server take into account even more real-life factors than before, producing more accurate and valuable routing results.   In addition, developers have the option to use the Web Application Developer Framework (ADF) to build their own customized routing applications.


ArcIMS Route Server offers fast and accurate routing and geocoding capabilities within the ArcIMS framework. It lets users perform rapid cross-country routing, set routing preferences (highway preferences and shortest or fastest route), use precision settings to fine-tune results, and calculate drive-time polygons.  This latest version of ArcIMS Route Server also improves routing by providing time-based restrictions, trip planning capabilities, and support for pedestrian routing.


ArcIMS Route Server 9.2 features the following enhancements:

  •       A sample Web application built using the new ArcIMS Web ADF for .NET is included in the Route Server 9.2 installation. It exposes all the functionality available in Route Server 9.2 to developers who wish to customize their applications.
  •       The routing engine supports time-based restrictions, such as an intersection where left turns are prohibited from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., provided the Smart Data Compression (SDC) datasets contain time domain information.
  •       The arrival time is provided in the driving directions for each turn in a route in addition to the total time and distance.
  •       Trip planning functionality allowing the scheduling of multiple-day routes is supported by the addition of new ArcXML elements.
  •       One-way and turn restrictions have been exposed to support pedestrian and emergency vehicle routing.
  •       Improvements have been made to the driving directions:  
    • "Bear left/right" instructions are provided.
    • Forks in roads are reported.
    • The street side for a destination is reported.  
  •           The sample DHTML Viewer has been updated to take advantage of the new trip planning functionality.


    ArcIMS Route Server 9.2 is compatible with ArcIMS 9.2.  For more information about ArcIMS Route Server, visit
