Route Finder  



As people spend more and more time travelling, whether it be for work or pleasure, it is becoming increasingly important to plan your route beforehand, avoiding the worst road bottlenecks and ensuring that you use the most fuel efficient or fastest route. RWAP Services first released Q-Route in 1998 to assist with route planning, allowing you to find the quickest or shortest route between any two places in mainland Britain.  We have since extended the repertoire of maps to include Belgium, Ireland and even Catalonia.

This is still one of the best selling programs for the Sinclair QL in recent years.

This program is for the Sinclair QL and allows you to find the best route between two places, using the map of Britain supplied. You can find the shortest or quickest route and display it graphically on screen or as a list of the roads which you need to take. The map can be easily updated and is in the same format as used on an Atari ST version of this program (Route Finder by Brian Henderson) and should therefore be updated fairly regularly. The on-screen map is generated from the database of roads, which avoids some of the common problems with other Route Finder software, where the map may show you a different route to the printed directions.

You can enter your own preferences for speeds on the various road types and even ask the program to find a route which avoids certain roads or places. The final output can be printed directly from the program (or by through another package if you wish) and the program supports Text87, Perfection, Xchange and Quill printer drivers, so there is little setting up to be done.

If you are interested in maps, then you might also want to consider 3D Terrain, which allows you to create 3-dimensional images of data, for example to create a contour map of a specific area.
