In the past I was working on different plugins to connect with multiple APIs and use their isochrone endpoints in QGIS. Let me summarize some of my findings and share my opinion on HERE, Azure Maps, Bing Maps, ORS, Esri and Iso4App.
API’s are getting more and more important as some (maybe the majority?) of GIS users don’t want to handle large datasets, don’t want to care about addresses and geo-coordinates, don’t want to create an own routing algorithm… As most of you might use Google, OSM or HERE for geocoding purposes I would like to introduce Azure Maps for this as well.
