The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control uses ArcIMS Route Server in its Shelter Navigation system. This system makes it easy for the public to find shelters.

A key enhancement to ArcIMS Route Server is the ability to handle complex turn restrictions. Complex turns represent a series of two or more maneuvers that form a restriction on the network. For example, a situation in which a left turn is allowed but a left turn followed by a right turn is not allowed is a complex turn restriction.

ArcIMS Route Server offers the ability to incorporate point-to-point driving directions and fast, accurate routing into Web sites built with ArcIMS. It calculates optimal routes based on time and distance and accommodates multiple stops along a route. ArcIMS Route Server also allows users to geocode and reverse geocode against the same highly compressed, optimized national dataset.
