Specify the characteristics of the heading, then confirm by clicking on the Validate button.

A Distance heading has the following characteristics:

Name

Give this heading a name.

Description

Give the heading a description. The description is optional.

Start location

Choose the geolocation type of dimension heading that will be used as the starting point for calculating distance.

Arrival location

Choose the geolocation type of dimension heading that will be used as the arrival point for calculating distance.

Unit

Choose the unit used: Kilometer or Mile.

Real Distance

By default the calculated distances are approximate distances between a point A and a point B. The road network is not taken into account to calculate the approximate distance.

If you check this box, VISUAL PLANNING recalculates all the distances to display the real distance between the start location and arrival location. Therefore, if you swap the start location with the arrival location the distance may vary, depending on the road network layout (e.g. one-way roads).

Important

However VISUAL PLANNING can only recalculate if its server is authorized to access Internet. Otherwise, the heading value will be 0.

Display format

Choose the format for displaying this heading in VISUAL PLANNING.

The following formats are available:
