Hey guys!

I was wondering, is there a website that lets you customize a Route Map online, say you want to create a fictitious airline and want to create a route map based on hub and cities served.

Tips anyone ?

I have been wanting to make a route map of my routes flown over the years, I have all the info stored in my data base, however I have been real interested in finding a way to create a route map of my travels, besides manually drawing it, I was wanting to find a way to do it on my computer, will this mapper work for what I want to do, or is there something better for my purposes? Any input would be truly appreciated.. Thanks!

If there is enough demand for it maybe a software company can make one? A free deal that you type in routes and it maps for you?

Anyone else interested in this? I have some connections I might be able to abuse for this sort of thing

One suggestion: find an old copy of Adobe Illustrator, take a suitable map of the region, then just make vectors between the city pairs you want. You can eye-ball the great-circle curvature by manipulating the anchor points, and Illustrator has some great visual effects.

My moto is to use an existing tool rather than making a new one  Wink

I would be very interested in anything that would allow me to make my own personal world route map of all the flights and routes I've flown, I have all this information in a data base, with pictures in my computer, the only thing that is missing is a route map, I would love this , it would make my year to have this kind of thing. The circle mapper, is what I'd like, but instead of just doing 1 route, I could get them to stay and I could add more to make my completed map. How do airlines do their on-line route maps, what programs do they use?

Probably a professional graphics suite like Adobe or Correl. Like I said, look for an old version of Adobe Illustrator and you can make excellent route maps. Import a .jpeg map, and create vectors between the city-pairs you have flown. The anchor point manegment allows some very creative options.

I would maybe drop an email to the folks who have come up with the Great Circle Mapper mentioned here:

The issue is the scalibility of the map, since they use a world map, short distance routes come out as a blur.....why don't ya ask them nicely what kind of program THEY use?
OR-
Ask them the possibility of including a zoom feature, refer them to this site and the archived topics on this issue, they may be hard to find, but guaranteed, there have been many requests on this topic.
It's obvious they use something that works quite well, so I'd start there.

Exactly! And if ya don't have it. Ask your neighbor if you can borrow his!

The other problem with gc.kls2 is that it can only support about 200 segments in the route display - if you have more, it can't cope.
