This function is available in OCAD Professional.

This command is only available if the map is georeferenced and a Coordinate System is set.

This command can be used to find the fastest way by car between two arbitrary points by downloading and importing the vector data from Google Maps.

Routing by Entering a Location

1. Select Routing in the Map menu to open the Routing dialog.
2. Enter the name of the start and end location.


Routing by Entering Coordinates

Instead of entering the name of the start and end point you can also simply click on these locations on the map.
1. Activate the Coordinate option in the Routing dialog.
2. Click on the Get Coordinate from Drawing Area button Routing8.png, then click on the start location on your map. OCAD displays the coordinate in the Routing dialog. Optionally you can enter the coordinate manually.
3. Do the same for the end location.


hint Please note that the function Get and import KML file does not work anymore.
