Find distance to the nearest point of interest
With Viamap’s distance calculator, you can calculate and visualize distances on maps, e.g. the distance between your company and various points of interest (schools, public transport, motorways, etc.). Viamap is a professional software company specializing in digital map solutions, distance calculations and visualizations on maps.
The “Find nearest” solution is especially relevant if you need to show distances, routes and travel time from a certain position – e.g. the location of property – to specific, nearby points of interest.
If you have lists of your points of interest, you can drag them directly to your map and into your database. All points of interest are constantly updated, so you always get the newest available data.
Viamap’s distance calculator gives you tools to:
