Area manager territories and regions

We have five area managers who look after a number of sites each (about 10) spread throughout the UK. How can I visually represent this on a map that shows the illogical (or logical) spread of their site distribution (from a distance perspective) Sub comment: I'd also like to be able to esimate the distances travelled if they visit each site x days per year and show the most efficient site per manager. Suggestions for this would be great too.

Finding closest address pairs from a list

I have a list of several hundred complete U.S. street addresses. For each record, I need to identify another record with the nearest address (in road distance), and its distance from the subject record’s address. Is there a free, easy way to accomplish this? [more inside]

Creating a Map Based on Distances Between Cities

Mapping question: I have a list of (imaginary) cities. I also know each city's as-the-crow-flies distance from every other city on the list. Based on this data alone, I would like to create a (hypothetical) map that shows all of these cities in their proper locations. I recognize that that the map's "rotation" would be arbitrary based on where & how you start plotting, but it seems that you should be able to plot out the relationships between cities properly. Is there software that can help me do this? [more inside]

Looking for an on-line distance-measurer

Online maps... I run along a weird path and around a lake, and I have no idea how far I'm going. Is there an online map that'll allow me to trace my route and gauge the distance?
