Route Optimization Software
« on: July 20, 2015, 10:51:46 AM »
Randal Olson (http://www.randalolson.com/2015/03/08/computing-the-optimal-road-trip-across-the-u-s/)
has created a route optimization program that takes a list of way-points as you would enter them in google maps and calculates an optimal route between them.  The program is freely shared.  I have run it on my PC locally and I'm hoping to make it accessible on my website.  Randal used this program to generate the map attached below.

I've described the issues I encountered loading and running his program in my blog dated 7/20/2015.  It is quite easy to load and run.  I recommend loading python 2.7 and avoiding the issues I had with version 3.4.
