The Ribbon Routing in the Ribbon Menu allows you to calculate the fastest route between two points. The Routing is divided into the following points:

 

1.Entering the routing destinations for Routing

2.Result of the Routing in text form (route description)

3.Result of the Routing in the map

4.Result of the Routing as PDF

 

1. Entering the routing destinations for Routing

The routing destinations can be entered in several ways.

 

The following options can be used to enter routing destinations:

Input via text field

Input via context menu

 

The input via the text field is made directly via the Routing Ribbon in the Ribbon menu. By default, one input text box is available for creating a route destination (start destination). The user can enter the address in the text box, which is located on the map after confirmation (enter key or focus outside of the text field). Correctly found addresses are indicated by a green text field. If the entered address could not be located, the text field is displayed in red. By using the button Add Stop another text box will be created and a second address can be entered in the box.

 

After entering at least 2 positions correctly, a route can be calculated. Click on the Calculate Route button to calculate the set route.

Furthermore, the  WebOffice core client also offers the possibility to set routing stops directly in the map area of the application. To do this, the context menu within the map can be opened by right-clicking. With the Set Routing Stop function, this position can be added and appears as the localized routing stop within the map.

Within the map, localized routing stops are then assigned as points with the corresponding sequence numbering. So, the user can easily recognize where the requested addresses are located and in which order the routing stops are processed.

2. Result of the Routing in text form (route description)

After calculating the route, an additional tab for the route description appears in the Ribbon Menu. The Route Description ribbon displays the most important data and route descriptions. The distance of the calculated route, the journey time for the specified means of transport and the description of the route can be read off. The route description is an interactive route description which acts with the map area of the WebOffice core client.

The route description of <%CORE% client can also be made visible on the map. By traversing a description in the Ribbon Menu a segment of the route can be highlighted in the map area. In addition, the description of the section is shown in the map area. The WebOffice core client provides a link between the route descriptions and the displayed route in the map and thus enables a clear representation of parts of a route.
