Solving the Travelling Salesman Problem

RouteXL is a Google Maps route planner that can help you solve the 'travelling salesman problem' of finding the optimum route for multiple stops.

Using RouteXL is very easy. Just add your addresses to the map and RouteXL will plan your route, taking in all your stops in the shortest distance. Users can add routes by clicking on each location on the map or they can simply use the 'import' option to just cut and paste in a list of addresses.

After a route has been calculated users can save the route or bookmark the link to the route map. Users can also print out the driving directions for the route and download the GPX for their satellite navigation device.
