I am very interested in getting additional information about the type of footway (=crossing, sidewalk, path, alley, indoor…) the returned path uses.
This information is incredibly useful for anyone building a navigation application for pedestrians and in particular handicapped users.
In my case, it would allow me to signal to our visually impaired users that they are approaching a crosswalk and that they should proceed with caution. Ultimately, the goal is to help them locate the start and end of crosswalks thanks to openstreetmap data.
Does anyone else need something similar ?
In any case, amazing work, and huge thanks to the GraphHopper team and contributors for making projects like mine possible.
