We’re happy to announce the release of v4.5 of openrouteservice, which exposes unique services for two of our core API’s, routing and isochrones. Now you can restrict routes to avoid crossing borders and get instant population counts on isochrones.
As we are thinking more or less specially I always ask myself: where can I be in the next 30 minutes? Most of current webmaps out there are not answering this quite good using isochrones as example. Most of them taking into account the direct distance which have some major implications if you compare the distance of 30min road trip through the countryside compared with the same time in Paris: about 50km against , right? So I would like to show you, how to get a better idea of reachability using three different approaches but all implemented in Leaflet.
