Depending on the types of PC*MILER data add-ons you have licensed, you may have access through PC*MILER Connect to multiple sets of routing data, including: street-level data in North America; worldwide highway data (PC*MILER Worldwide); and data for oil and gas lease roads (PC*MILER Energy).
You may also have multiple sets of street-level data in North America as it is regularly updated between versions of PC*MILER. That includes the base version data (called Base), as well as more recently released data set updates (called Last or Latest).
The data set currently in use is identified in your C:\ALK Technologies\PCMILERxx\App\user.cfg file in the [Directories] section.
