Get Started

The Routing API is an HTTP JSON REST API that offers easy and fast route calculation between two or more locations for several regions in the world.

The /routes response consists of a series of sections, which represent legs of the route, with relevant information like the route length and estimated travel time. Additional properties, such as the shape of the route as a flexible-polyline, can be optionally requested.

The Routing API is customizable in other ways and allows users to specify options that influence the route calculation as well as to request additional information related to the route, to suit specific application use cases.

For example, this information in the response can enable mapping applications to the following:

  • Render the geographical representation of the route together with the map data, so that the route is displayed on the map
  • Create applications that enable turn-by-turn guidance
