Figure 3 is a snapshot view from the mapping interface. In this case, the input origin is Chicago, Illinois and the destination is Haines City, Florida. The input mode sequence is water followed by highway. Using this information, GeoMiler calculates a path in which the shipment leaves Chicago, travels by inland waterways through the port of Mobile, Alabama, across the Gulf of Mexico to a port in Florida, and then continues by truck to its final destination in Haines City, Florida, traveling a distance of 1,849 miles.
