Calculated time of routing is much lower than compared with online GraphHopper


#1

Hi all,

When I run e.g. this in online, it results in 12 minutes.

Doing the same via the Java API locally (using the most recent Belgium map ), it results in 8 minutes; quite a big difference.

This is not an isolated case, comparing some routings with Google Maps shows sometimes big deviations.

I’ve found a topic Improved Feature: Better ETA values announcing from begin 2016 to improve the ETA.

Are my results expected? Can I influence this? Just multiplying with a factor doesn’t seem right since the deviation is different case by case.

Yes, this cannot be part of the open source release.

Yes, you’ll need some external data to improve it or heavy heuristics.
