Melissa recently launched a new Cloud API – Street Route. It is an easy-to-use tool that returns the driving distance and total drive time between two locations. Street Route takes two latitude/longitude coordinates, or a batch of points, and calculates the distance.
Street Route is exceptionally useful during emergency response or disaster relief planning. Hospitals use Street Route to calculate the most accurate distance and travel time from the hospital to a home; or to help people calculate the distance from their home to the nearest emergency shelter or location where they can get water supplies. The solution is also useful for insurance companies and businesses looking to direct their customers to a nearby store location.
