Routing Overview

Routing is what the Meridian Editor uses to provide your visitors turn-by-turn directions in the Meridian-powered app to and from any point of interest, or placemark, on your map.

Routing Overview

In the Meridian Editor, a route is called a pathway. Points of interest are identified by placemarks on the map.

The advantage of the Meridian routing feature is that you don't have to draw every possible pathway on your map. All you need to do is mark the legal pathways your visitors can use and Meridian will calculate the best possible route between any two placemarks. When calculating a path, Meridian chooses either the shortest route or the shortest accessible route.

In the Editor, a routing graph is made up of blue lines and blue dots. The blue lines, or segments, are legal pathways. The blue dots, or nodes, mark the start and end of a segment. Every segment has two nodes, one on each end.
