Feature Available in Version 32 and Higher
(Streets add-on license required) A Site extends a location to include a boundary polygon around its perimeter, entry and exit points (gates), and other valuable information. For example, a Site can be a warehouse, a shopping mall, a distribution center, a yard, a business park, etc.
Routing to a Site can provide more accurate directions and time and distance estimates by taking a driver directly to the proper entry and exit points, rather just an address or a latitude/longitude point.
Sites are created around custom places in the Content Tools web tool and synced with the PC*MILER user interface.
Enabling Sites Routing
If you want to route to a road within a Site, you must first enable street-level routing using one of these two methods:
- In the pcmserve.ini file, under the [Options] section, set UseStreets=True
- Use PCMSSetRouteLevel to set street-level routing
Disabling Sites Routing
With streets routing enabled, Sites routing is turned on by default. If you would like to disabled Sites routing—for example, if you are only using PC*MILER Connect for rating—it can be turned off using on of two methods:
- A setting in the pcmserve.ini file. Under the [Options] section, set UseSites=False
- Via the PCMSUseSites API (Available in Version 34 and Higher)
NOTE: UseSites is set to False by default if you are not licensed for the Streets add-on.
