Hello all of you,
I just wanted to ask some question after looking into your documentation
We develop some local routing for our planning algorithm and use your software for the routing. So I have to make some adjustments and have some questions after looking into your documentation.
I hope you can help me, just to clarify some things
In Routing via Java API is a section about alternative routes. It is described to only work with flexible mode. Is the speed mode only calculating one route per request or is it also possible to use with the speedmode or hybrid mode for it?
As I see in TruckFlagEncoder in Core the TruckFlagEncoder isn’t in the core version at the moment. So we have to create our own. I’m relativly new to graphhopper. Is there any update to it or do you have plans to publish the TruckflagEncoder in the near future? Can you also give me some hints, what I have to look for or where I have to investigate more time into to do it properly? For example: If i’m adding “hgv=yes” as a restriction, a truck can’t use streets which have “hgv=yes” as a tag in germary, am i right?
We want to calculate toll distance and later toll costs. I found Toll Cost and Distance Calculation.
If i’m understanding it the right way: If I add some new EncodedValue to my TruckFlagEncoder like “tollEncoder” (which saves a boolean flag for example) and set it to true each time the “toll=yes” flag is present? Later in the response I somehow can get to this values to get the distance and calculate the costs of it?
Which version do you would suggest to use? The latest unstable or the 0.9.0 stable? I’m tending to the stable version.
The questions are long, but I hope they are understandable.
Thank you for your help in advance.
