New AA Route Planner Beta

New AA Route Planner Beta

The AA Route Planner is under going an update - here is the first blog mention of it.

AA Route Planner Beta Map AA Overview
Google Maps based, but AA have their own Custom Maps in the Info Windows (click the sidebar and an info window at the location is displayed)

AA Route Planner Beta Map
European Directions includes channel crossings, Ireland is also covered.


The switch from old the ArcIMS to Google Maps API but preserving the additional functionalities of the old routing [sidebar in graphic form - the road sign structure]. It is still under beta and things might change and improve, Points of Interest (POI's) along the route might be useful.

The Sidebar is interactive and is displayed as the driver would recognise the signage [Primary Route Green, Motorway Blue etc.]

Just a thought, but I bet a lot of the AA data is derived from OS at some point!!

Is this dead before its started!

The AA have a commerical license to display OS data..online
but they should show the licence number on the new beta maps.

(lesson learnt back in 2001)

Rand McNally is fighting back for their rightful place in the mapping industry and online maps/directions destination site:

(this Rand McNally news release is running nationally on the Newsforce sponsored content network)

Disclosure: I work with Newsforce, but thought you should be aware of this story since you monitor the mapping/ map technology space.
