Datasets and Versions

Depending on your licensing, you may have multiple datasets and software versions available for use in routing and route reports. These sets are selected in API calls by using the dataVersion or dataset parameters. Current is the default value for all APIs.

dataVersion Options

  • PCM18-PCM33: These values use the data and software as it was at the time that version of PC*MILER was released.

  • PCM_WW (Worldwide): This value uses the data and software from the most current version release of PC*MILER Worldwide.

  • PCM_NA (North America), PCM_EU (Europe), PCM_OC (Oceania), PCM_SA (South America), PCM_ME (Middle East), PCM_AS (Asia),PCM_AF (Africa), PCM_GT (GeoTrack): These values use the most current software and data for the region selected. View list of countries by region.

  • Current (Default): This value uses the most current software and data for any regions you have available based on your licensing.

  • Baseline: This value uses the original data and software for the most current version release of PC*MILER.

  • LastQuarter: This value uses the data from the last quarterly data release. For example, if Q4 data is released, Q3 data will be used.

dataset Options

For Location (Geocoding) APIs, and the Route Path API, the dataset parameter accepts the same values as dataVersion.

For other Mapping APIs, dataset options include:

  • PCM_WW (Worldwide): This value uses the data and software from the most current version release of PC*MILER Worldwide.

  • PCM_NA (North America), PCM_EU (Europe), PCM_OC (Oceania), PCM_SA (South America), PCM_ME (Middle East), PCM_AS (Asia),PCM_AF (Africa), PCM_GT (GeoTrack): These values use the most current software and data for the region selected. View list of countries by region.

  • Current (Default): This value uses the most current software and data for any regions you have available based on your licensing.
