Spatial Insights, Inc. announces the release of Freeway 2009 and Freeway 2009 Premium from Applied Spatial Technology, Inc. The standard US and Canadian versions have been enhanced with the most up-to-date street networks from TIGER 2008 and 2008 Statistics Canada while the premium versions have incorporated NAVTEQ streets.

Freeway creates drive time polygons, as well as output table matrices of drive times and drive distances between multiple origins and multiple destinations. Freeway is widely used in site selection to delineate trade areas and to analyze spatial relationships between locations based on drive time and distance. Users have the flexibility to specify road conditions and speed limit assignments.

“We feel that Freeway 2009 and Freeway 2009 Premium, as the industry standard US and Canadian drive time applications, offer the best solution available to help our clients solve spatial challenges and analyze demographics,” said Don Segal, Spatial Insights president.

In addition to the standard stand-alone software purchases, Freeway 2009 and Freeway 2009 Premium are available as a software development kit, allowing the drive time analysis functionality to be embedded within other applications, or the development of fully customized drive time applications.
