Interfacing with GIS Data

Recommended Posts

Recently we were asked how Simio might interact with GIS Data.

Attached is a PDF document explaining how Simio can interact with GIS Service Providers, plus a demonstration Add-In (GisAddIn) that constructs Simio nodes and paths using GIS data obtained from Microsoft's Bing Maps service. I will eventually get around to adding Google and ArcGIS. There is also the Simio project file that this Add-In 'built'.


In a nutshell. The Add-In pops up a form where you can enter a start and end destination, and then Requests a road route between those destinations. Once the Response data is received and processed, the appropriate Simio objects are constructed.


Note: To get this to work, you'll need a Bing Maps Key. These are free and the instructions on how to get one is in the PDF Document
