I have used the online services very successful for service and areas and location-allocation work.
I know what to generate a whole lot of actual (not euclidean) point to point distances from 10 facilities to individual residential points (=~3000).
I've been trying to use the route service to generate this as I'd like to do my analysis on 'real' distance. Would I use the route service to do this? I get stuck on how to enter all the routes (with no stops)
My other question is a bout the source of the roading network data. I'd liek to reference it properly and emphasise the reliability and validity of this data service.
