You run a pan-US drone delivery service for a popular online retailer. You're given a list of zip codes across the US at which you need to drop off parcels, and want to optimize its journey so it travels the shortest distance.

This application extracts the latitude and longitude of those zip codes from an SQLlite database (the application includes the database, which cross-references US zip codes against their latitude, longitude, city and state). The application then performs a traveling salesman optimization and plots the shortest path on a map of the US.

This application uses background plot images, and SQLLite integration, two new features introduced in Maple 18.
