Today OpenRouteService at 7th GeoIT WhereCamp Conference Berlin

Today we present the latest version and details on the technical API of OpenRouteService at the 7th GeoIT WhereCamp Conference Berlin. Tim from the Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology (HeiGIT) will talk about

Consuming Open Data for Highly Customizable Route Planning

He will show some examples of the very rich feature set and API of OpenRouteService like many specialized routing profiles (from heavy vehicles with many options to several specialized bike profiles (e-Bike, MTB, secure etc with further options.), or even healthy, quiet or wheelchair routing – even with crossing open spaces). Further API endpoints and services include fast and highly configurable isochrones for accessibility analysis, geocoder, the Locations API and the brand new Matrix API,, as well as navigation features such as Landmark based navigation. ORS is open source, based on OpenStreetMap data and is also the routing engine of the German national “Bundesamt für Kartographie und Geodesie” (BKG).
