Feature Available in Version 32 and Higher


(PC*MILER|Streets required) A Site extends a location to include a boundary polygon around its perimeter, entry and exit points (gates), and other valuable information. For example, a Site can be a warehouse, a shopping mall, a distribution center, a yard, a business park, etc. 


Routing to a Site can provide more accurate directions and time and distance estimates by taking a driver directly to the proper entry and exit points, rather just an address or a latitude/longitude point. 


Sites are created around custom places in the Content Tools web tool and synced with the PC*MILER user interface. 


Enabling Sites Routing

If you want to route to a road within a Site, you must first enable street-level routing using one of these two methods: 


Disabling Sites Routing 

With streets routing enabled, Sites routing is turned on by default.  If you would like to disabled Sites routing—for example, if you are only using PC*MILER|Connect for rating—it can be turned off using a setting in the pcmserve.ini file


  • Under the [Options] section, set UseSites=False


NOTE: UseSites is set to False by default if you are not licensed for PC*MILER|Streets.
