Graphhopper as a viable alternative to
Google Maps, one may take into account alternative routes feature that
Google Maps provides. Recent versions of
Graphhopper seem to move forward to this feature.
Currently, if you build your route within some city, it works well and fast. But if you are looking for routes from, say, Moscow to Vladivostok, it may take up to 80 seconds to get a response from server. We can’t make our user wait too long, so as temporary solution we’re planning to disable alternative route feature when distance between route legs is too big.
Given all of the above, are you planning to optimize alternative route search algorithm?
