RW Net 4.44 - Overview

RW Net is our flagship routing product. It is the result of many years of R&D.

It is aimed at developers who need to create routing-enabled applications (desktop, server, web ..)
and analysts who need to do network analysis (matrices, travelling salesman, network checking ..)
as part of their daily tasks.

    Data source

    Data structure should be a line network which does not need topology. However lines do have to connect ("snap").

    See a list of known sources here

    You are not limited to road networks: RW Net can also be used for pipelines, telecommunication, rivers, etc.

    RW Net 4 works perfectly together with many GIS packages:
    QGIS, ArcGIS, MapWinGIS, MapXtreme, MapObjects, CartoVCL, GeoObjects ...
