Pedestrian Routing Request

The pedestrian routing API computes personalized pedestrian routes from a start location to a number of destination locations using Per Pedes Routing (PPR).

  • start required, type Position

    The start location.

  • destination required, array of Position

    At least one destination location.

  • search_options required

    The PPR search profile and maximum walk duration to use. See PPR Search Profile.

  • include_steps optional, type boolean, default is false

    Whether to include a travel itinerary in the response.

  • include_edges optional, type boolean, default is false

    Whether to include a list of all used edges in the response (useful for debugging purposes).

  • include_path optional, type boolean, default is false

    Whether to include the complete path as a single polyline in the response.

Pedestrian Routing Response

The pedestrian routing response contains routes from the start location to each of the destination locations included in the request.

  • routes array of Routes

    Contains a list of routes for each destination included in the request. This list always has the same size as the destinations list from the request, and contains routes for the destinations in the same order as they appear in the request.

Routes

  • routes array of Route

    All pareto-optimal routes from the start location to this destination location. This list can be empty if no route could be found within the specified duration limit.

Route

  • distance type float

    The total walking distance in meters.

  • duration type integer

    The total duration in minutes (rounded as specified in the search profile).

  • duration_exact type float

    The total duration in minutes.

  • duration_division type float

    Duration division, if used in the search profile and more routes than allowed were found.

  • accessibility type integer

    The total accessibility value of the connection (rounded as specified in the search profile).

  • accessibility_exact type float

    The total accessibility value of the connection.

  • accessibility_division type float

    Accessibility division, if used in the search profile and more routes than allowed were found.

  • start type Position

    The start location of this route.

  • destination type Position

    The destination location of this route.

  • elevation_up type float

    Total upwards elevation profile in meters.

  • elevation_down type float

    Total downwards elevation profile in meters.

  • steps array of RouteStep

    A list of steps describing the itinerary. Only present if include_steps was set to true in the request (otherwise an empty array).

  • edges array of Edge

    A list of edges used in the route. Only present if include_edges was set to true in the request (otherwise an empty array).

  • path type Polyline

    A polyline describing the complete route. Only present if include_path was set to true in the request (otherwise an empty polyline).
